Homework for Thursday, October 15th

October 14, 2015

Gentlemen,

I hope you enjoyed today’s class with Dr. Schaffer. For homework tonight I want you to do two things. First please read the file below “Reading History #5: The City Transforms Man”. Take good notes and consider the following questions:

1. How does the “release of creativity” that Mumford references at the beginning of paragraph three relate to the development of the city?
2. What role does the Mesopotamian citadel play in the development of modern institutions?
3. How did the increased specialization of the labor force in Mesopotamian cities help form its power structures and class rivalries?

Second, you should continue to review for Friday’s test. Please come with three possible essay questions and a list of terms you have compiled. Please also know that a portion of the test will be on the map of the Ancient Near East.
