  • AP World History -

    First, what do you know about Rome and Han China? What opinion do you have about the comparison of these two civilizations?

    If you post your ideas, we'll be glad to help you develop a thesis statement.

    The first four sites here have good explanations and examples of thesis statements.

    well the DBQ essay is- using the documents, anaylze Han and Roman attitudes toward technology, identify one additional type of document. what confuses me is grouping the documents i no a group is more than one and they need to be related but im in the ib program and i have this class called inquiry skills that's supposed
    to help me in ap world but both teachers tell me two diffrent things like one said you ca use one document in more than one group and the other said u cant? :(

  • AP World History -

    yes you can as long as you can back it up with information.

  • AP World History -

    Here are some excellent sites explaining and giving examples of poor and good thesis statements:

    prompt- Using the documents,analyze Han and Roman attitudes toward technology, identify one additional type of documents and explain briefly how it would help your analysis.
    thesis?-Rome and Han china had similar attitudes regarding technology, high ranking officials think craft and tools are for the lower class, while some officials can identify the advantages in new technology.

  • AP World History -

    Your thesis is a run on sentence, doesn't make much sense, and is much too broad.

  • AP World History -

    Please study the websites that Writeacher and I posted for you about thesis sentences. Also, I urge you to follow our other suggestions.

  • AP World History -

    i read three of the 4 websites. forth didn't work and now i understand the concept of a thesis statement but it seems my topic is befuddling. there are 8 documents 5 of them think technology or crafting tolls is for the poor and "vulgar" people while three documents recognize technolgy making as being essential to society but i cant seem to form that into a narrow main idea as the websites suggest.

  • AP World History -

    Was there a difference between what the Romans and the Han thought about technology? For instance, did the Romans generally favor it as valuable to society? Did the Han look down upon technology and crafts?

  • AP World History -

    I need help on this subject too!

  • AP World History -

    Romans put emphasis on beauty and practicality; Han just wanted useful technology. The technology which the empire and dynasty used showed their type of economy and society. Rome- builds roads, b/c it was a plunder system, and Han-has agricultural innovations b/c it's an agricultural based economy and society.

  • AP World History -

    I need some help too.
    I already have the idea that high ranking officials thought that the lower class was vulgar, since they worked in occupations using tools such as agriculture or building. Also, i have the idea that the attitudes toward techonology from the philosphers was influenced by their teachings. Could someone please suggest a third ?
    Can you use the same document twice??

  • AP World History -

    Well....the Han favor advances in technology. All the Han documents are in a scholars pov and that means they are well studied in Confucianism, which promotes the idea that they are in favor of making the working class's labor more efficient. However. a missing voice of someone such as a common, lower-class, working person is needed.

    bias??

  • AP World History -

    Han Dynasty and Roman Empire both succeeded in making extraordinary advances in technology However the Han dynasty’s attitude toward manufacturing and labor was more open and positive. The Han’s especially the government emphasized efficiency in their tools, as well as using technology to prevent natural disasters and reduce labor whereas the Romans marveled at their civilization’s advancements and considered the work and technology of craftsmen to be vulgar.

  • AP World History -

    Guys, you should read the sites. If your just here for someone to throw the answers in your face, then your in the wrong place.

  • AP World History -

    I am analyzing the same DBQ, is this a good thesis?


    Both Han China and the Roman Empire were highly advanced in the development of technology, and both empires had very practical, organized and precise mechanized skills, yet the Romans valued their technology for its beauty and aesthetics whereas Han valued their technology for its expediency, this illustrates how these two, classical civilizations had very different attitudes toward technology.

    thesis on India and china?

  • AP World History -

    I really hate these DBQs, but i like how my teacher is going over them throughout the year to help me to get a good grade on the AP test at the end of the year. This writing prompt is fairly simple as long as you know a little information about the topic. If you know nothing, make it sound like you do because they wont know. Anyways, if you are still having trouble,(im kinda two years late) just kinda jumble everything together and you will be fine ;)

  • AP World History -

    my thesis is:In spite of both the Roman and Han government involvement in technology, during the classical period the Romans had a more neutral/negative attitude whereas Han China had a positive view towards crafts people. is that ok?

    is this good, The Han and Roman Empire were important empires during the time of their existence. The Han Empire began around 206 B.C.E and ended 220 C.E. The Roman Empire began around 27 B.C.E. Throughout their existence, Han China saw technology as an important and beneficial resource in the empire while the Roman Empire did not care too much about technology and took it for granted. Han China’s attitudes towards technology were more positive and open than the Roman Empire who had a more systematic society causing their attitude to be low and negative.
