Opinions are welcome in your responses, but opinions should be accompanied with support. A gentle reminder that encyclopedias are never allowed as sources in this or any history course in this University. Use of forbidden tertiary sources will result in a one letter grade deduction per use. Do not ask questions in these student responses in your weekly general forum. Please save your questions for your travel log responses to your fellow students.

Please keep in mind that you are required to answer my follow-up question (in 150 to 200 words) before the Sunday deadline and that this exchange with me does not count as one of your required follow-up postings to your fellow students.
Make sure you address your fellow students by name at the beginning of your post.
Choose one of the following questions and respond by Friday at 11:55 PM EST. Respond to at least two other students by Sunday at 11:55 PM EST.
Because of the size of this class, pick a new question to respond to if the question has been responded to by five of your fellow students by the time of your submission. Please put the number of the question you are answering in your Subject Line of your main essay response (example “Question #1”). This will allow you to easily see how many times this question has been answered.
1) How did the growing economy change China during the Tang and Song eras? How did this lead to advances in science and technology? Why do you think these changes led to a greater demand for slaves and concubines?
2) How did Neo-Confucianism differ from traditional Confucianism? How did the increased dependence on Neo-Confucianism change the education system in China? Why do you think this system endured through changing dynasties?
3) How did Japan change under the rule of the Fujiwara? Why was Buddhism gaining in popularity? Why do you think this period fostered advances in literature?
4) How did Japanese society change with the rise of military rule? How did these changes lead towards a decrease in centralized power? Why do you think such strict rule and order became popular?
5) What influence did the invasions of the ninth century have on European development? What motivated these invasions? What do you think led to their eventual decline?
6) What prompted the Church to enter into a period of reforms? How did the Church address the issues that had weakened the power of its institution? Why do you think there was increasing conflict between secular and religious leaders during this period?
7) What led up to the beginning of the Crusades? What motivated people to leave their homes to try to free the Holy Land? Why do you think the Crusades were not successful?
8) Discuss the importance of guilds on the growing strength of Medieval cities and towns. How was this structure later incorporated to meet the growing demand for higher education? What do you think increased the demand and popularity of universities during this period?
