write a 250-300 word learning diary about what you learned from the Expansion, Exploration, and Encounters Unit. It is recommended, but not required, that you think about the essential question of the unit: How did the Middle East, Europe, China, and Japan interact during the Early Modern Era (1450-1750)? Another potential focus of your learning diary could be to comment on the theme of expansion, exploration, and encounters in this unit.
You must not only summarize what you learned, but you must also reflect on what you found interesting/surprising and analyze the “big picture.” Directions for learning diaries are attached.
Use any of the information from this unit (i.e., notes, homework, discussion) to write your learning diary. Use this assignment as an opportunity to review the material and reflect on your learning process.
