Your entire packet is due the by the end of the first week of your AP class. 1

2 AP WORLD HISTORY SUMMER ASSIGNMENT 2018 Dear Students Welcome to your sophomore AP World History course! In preparation for our busy year, you are expected to complete the following FOUR assignments over the summer! Please review the descriptions of the activities listed below and the assessments for each assignment. We will begin our course of study in the year 8,000 B.C.E. and finish the school year looking at modern day issues.

You will also have to complete three basic world religions charts, answer questions about the Neolithic Revolution and complete a geography assignment. Please feel free to me over the summer if you have questions. Sincerely, Mr. Shaw Assignment One WORLD RELIGIONS The influence of major religions and semi-religious philosophies on societies will provide a reoccurring theme throughout the course. It is important for you to be familiar with each religion as we proceed. Please follow the directions below: 1. Visit the following sources: BBC Religion & Ethics Website Infoplease.com World Religions PowerPoint on Edmodo. 2. Complete each of the following: Western Eurasian Religions Chart Eastern Eurasian Religions Chart Classical Eastern Semi-Religious Philosophies Chart An example of the detail expected of you can be found on the Classical Eastern Semi- Religious Philosophies Chart under Daoism (Taoism). To help you complete each section of the chart, be sure to keep the following in mind: 1. Symbol Draw in and name the appropriate symbol for each religion 2.

3 MONOTHEISTIC RELIGIONS OF WESTERN EURASIA Symbol JUDAISM CHRISTIANITY ISLAM Founder / Patriarch Place and Date of Origin & Modern Extent Holy or Sacred Text Teaching or Core Beliefs Role of Women 3

4 POLYTHEISTIC RELIGIONS OF EASTERN EURASIA HINDUISM BUDDHISM Symbol Founder / Patriarch Place and Date of Origin & Modern Extent Holy or Sacred Text Teaching or Core Beliefs Role of Women 4

5 CLASSICAL EASTERN SEMI-RELIGIOUS PHILOSOPHES DAOISM CONFUCIANISM Symbol Founder / Patriarch Laozi (Lao-tzu), otherwise known as the Old Master Place and Date of Origin & Modern Extent c. 500 BCE during the Zhou Dynasty; would become popularized throughout China c. 200 BCE; birth/death dates unknown (probably c.500 BCE) Holy or Sacred Text Teaching or Core Beliefs Tao-te Ching (Book of the Way) stresses the path toward wisdom through experience; I- Ching (Book of Changes) analyzes & predicts future events Mostly Practiced in China Dictates that the universe and all within are permeated by a natural order that must be felt and experienced to be understood. Temporal (worldly) matters are of little concern; seeking knowledge of the Dao (or Way) through nature, poetry, and experience is all that matters. Great emphasis on the individual and the balance with nature. (Yin-Yang) A true Taoist embraces the nature of things, and does not waste effort effecting their whim on life, but rather surrenders themselves to experience Taoist rituals permeated other ancient practices, and commonly became associated with the mystical. Co-exists within Eastern concepts of Buddhism and Confucianism. Many Mahayana Buddhist sects have elements of Daoism infused in their teachings (underscores Chinese influence on the spread of Buddhism to Korea & Japan) For Confucianism, the Taoist belief in balance accentuates the balance between benevolence and respect that superiors must show their subordinates. Role of Women Daoism makes no concrete distinction between men and women; all individuals are equal in light of the Dao 5
