          How to make summaries.  READ  first, then :

          1.  Look at one titled section at a time 

          2. Write the title as a heading.  (You can use color if that works for you.) (For the first page, there is not title.  Label it "Introduction")

          3.  Pick out the most important ideas. 

          4.  Write them in your own words. 

          5. You need at least 2 sentences but no more than half the number of sentences you read to summarize.  A good rule of thumb is at least one sentence per paragraph. 

          6.  Always write the vocabulary and definitions in the section (They don't count as a summary sentence.)

          Look at "Ch 6 Summaries Blank" below for an example.

          Rise of Greece BIG IDEAS

          1.  Ancient Greece was centered around the Aegean Sea- all travel, trade, and life was centered there

          3. Greece Influenced Rome

                • Roman Key Ideas

                  Romans hated the Etruscan king and wanted to run their own government more equally

                  Romans admired Greek Democracy===> Republic is the result   NO KINGS!

                  Patricians vs. Plebeians   (rich vs. poor)

                  Rich people thought they should run things

                  Common people wanted equal rights

                  Trade and travel is essential to grow and maintain countries.  Roads and ports

                  Arches and concrete allowed Romans to build huge, impressive structures

                  Republic form of government originated in Rome

                             Choose representatives to make decisions.  Good for large countries.

                  Roman law influenced American law.  

                              Common laws for all.  Make them public knowledge.

                  Five Good Emperors expanded Roman territory

                  Bad Emperors were corrupt- more concerned with power and wealth than the people

                  Diocletian split the empire to make it easier to rule

                  Constantine won a civil war to take over the whole thing

                  Constantine moved the capital to Constantinople

                  West fell apart because of Germanic invasions.

                  East stood strong and becomes the Byzantine Empire

                  Three classes of Romans- 1.  Patricians 2. Plebeians 3. Slaves

                  Men had to register for the census to be counted as citizens

                                   - claimed women, children and slaves 

                  Paterfamilias- head of household, oldest male, made or approved all decisions

                  Christianity began in Judea during Augustus's rule

                       1. Accept Jesus as Son of God  2.Golden Rule  3. Eternity in Heaven

                  Christians were blamed for almost all problems in the Empire before Constantine

                  The Romans then spread Christianity to those they took over or befriended

                  Cost-Benefit of Economic and Business decisions for Roman building projects

                           HOW TO: Coloring Map-  Pick up a map of the Roman Empire in class.  Pick three colors (blue is a good choice for water, the other two are completely up to you).  Write your words and definitions straight across the page.  If you are writing in the water area on the map, use blue, when you cross a line, change to the appropriate color so that you are coloring the map using the words in the correct color.  reuse words and definitions to completely color the page.  Option- some people like to use a pen or marker to write, then fill in the background with crayon or colored pencil.  It makes a nice effect.

                            Heraldry Project-  Quick Explanation

                            Basically this is a report on the origin of the student's ancestry in the form of a coat-of-arms.   There are only two absolute requirements for this:  1.  All symbols, colors, and shapes the student uses in their coat-of-arms must have a purpose, and 2.  There must be a key to show what those symbols, colors, and shapes mean.  Then, there's some writing to do, to help explain some details.

                            I am spending a few minutes with every student to try to help them figure out the simplest way to represent everything they believe to be important to their family.  THIS IS NOT A RESEARCH PROJECT.  I just want the students to ask questions about their family.   We will only use what they know.  It makes history a lot more interesting when they know that they may have had family in the middle of it.
