As you have learned in this course, ancient world civilisations and cultures have had great influence on modern society. Even those civilisations that have ceased to exist seem to have as great an influence on us as those who are still in existence. The Roman and Chinese empires are examples of cultures with significant impact.
For this assignment, you will research these two civilisations in the time periods discussed in your textbook, focusing in on their most valued contributions, the fallout from their ancient decline, and how their influence is felt in the modern world. Your information should be delivered in a narrated slideshow/oral presentation and accompanying a 2–3-page paper.
The slideshow should be approximately seven to ten slides. Examples include YouTube, Visme, and VoiceThread (all with free trials or student editions).
The Roman and Chinese Empire
Introduce material here… Remember, each professional assignment must have the headings listed below and must be answered according to assignment instructions; each heading is worth a percentage of each case grade and this is how your work should be submitted.
Your audience is someone like your roommate – intelligent, educated, but has NO IDEA about ancient world civilisations. You do not want to copy-and-paste the case, but put forth a brief summary so your reader knows what is going on.
This section is generally one paragraph. The easiest way to explain this section is to think of it like an abstract or introduction. If written properly, this section can actually serve as the abstract for the paper.
It will, in a sense, set up the rest of the paper, which is to research and discuss two ancient world civilisations and cultures: the Roman and Chinese empire. Remember that if you obtained this information from the textbook, you should cite Fiero (2015). You should NOT write According to the textbook as your reader has NO IDEA who or what is that.
Do remember to take notes as you read through the case study information so that you are prepared to complete this report.
If there is a second paragraph, it will look like this. The paper should be written in third person narrative and not in the first person. Note: The required headings that must be in the paper are bolded and should be kept bolded. Make sure you always include enough text to form a complete paragraph before moving to the next section.
In this section, you will briefly describe the Roman empire in terms of its most valued contributions, the fallout from its ancient decline, and how its influence is felt in the modern world. Make sure you always include enough text to form a complete paragraph before moving to the next section.
In this section, you will briefly describe the Chinese empire in terms of its most valued contributions, the fallout from its ancient decline, and how its influence is felt in the modern world. Make sure you always include enough text to form a complete paragraph before moving to the next section.
Summary and Conclusions
This section will tie together all sources used for this professional assignment, conclusions drawn from the readings, your designed oral presentation and any inconsistencies. This section will generally be one to two paragraphs. Notice the paper has a continuous flow; there are no page breaks between sections.
The only page breaks occur between the title page and the introduction, and between the summary or conclusions and the reference page. Note: If there is a header at the bottom of the page) on the last line), you will need to insert a page break immediately before the header to properly move it to the next page with its text.
All references for the assignment must appear on a separate page (see the following page for an example). Best practice is to always have at least 2-3-peer-reviewed or academic references, of which one should be your textbook or other assigned readings.
This section will reference all original work cited throughout the paper. It also gets its own page, meaning that it will not start at the bottom of a previous page.
The heading should appear at the top of the page (first line of text) and all reference material should be listed below in alphabetical order by first last name. Also, the title for books is always in italic format and in sentence form. In contrast to book references, the title for articles is in sentence format, not in italic, but the name of the journal or magazine is in italics.
Furthermore, references are formatted with a hanging indent, meaning the first line is never indented, and all subsequent lines are indented. See examples below:
