AIM: How has geography affected history?

Do Now: Class set, please do NOT keep. Take good notes and answer questions 1-5 in your notebooks (this is part of class work and I will be conducting a desk check) Before answering, “turn and talk” to your classmate. Also, please be reminded that part of this class is following class rules. This includes but is not limited to: do not talk over another student who has been called upon. Do not talk while I, your teacher, is speaking. You can talk and are encouraged to talk when cooperating on answering the “Do Now.” You are encouraged to participate in the lesson. If there is down time when I distribute materials or set up a video you can talk. Cell phones are not allowed unless you ask permission to research history. Notebooks must be out and you should write notes and following instructions every day. Respect you classmates, yourself and your teacher. And finally, do not stand up or loudly pack up your books before we are finished with the lesson. Also, following these rules affect the class work grade.

Outline: I. Geography and History

A. Choosing a location for a Settlement

1. Resources and trade routes

2. Landforms and Defense

3. Combined Advantages

B. Images










Pivotal Questions:

· How does human movement influence the places settlements are founded/

· What advantages do islands offer to people choosing a site for a settlement?

· In what way are the locations of Hong Kong and New York similar/

· Settlers who chose a spot because of its advantages for trade were interested in its relative location rather than its absolute location. Explain why this is so.

Video: Continue with BHP “Big History of Everything” Unit 7 After the 10 minute mark

Objectives: Students will learn how geography affects history and how people have chosen locations for settlement. Students learn about landforms and defense.


Golden Rule

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, is a teaching found in all the Divine religions of God: “The Golden Rule, the teaching that we should treat others as we ourselves would wish to be treated, is an ethic variously repeated in all the great religions:”

(Baha’i International Community, 1995 Oct, Turning Point For All Nations)

Judaism: The Talmud, Shabbat 31a. “What is hateful to you, do not to your fellow men. That is the entire Law, all the rest is commentary.” (Moses). Leviticus 19:17 “Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.” Leviticus 19:18 “Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.”

Christianity: Matthew 7:12 “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.” Luke 6:31 “And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.”

Islam: Letter 31. “My dear son, so far as your behaviour with other human beings is concerned, let your self act as scales to judge its goodness or wickedness. Do unto others as you wish others to do unto you.”

(Islam, Ali b. Abi Taalib, Letters from Nahjul Balaagh)

Letter 31. “Whatever you like for yourself, like for others, and whatever you dislike to happen to you, spare others from such happenings. Do not oppress and tyrannize anybody because you surely do not like to be oppressed and tyrannized. Be kind and sympathetic to others as you certainly desire others to treat you kindly and sympathetically.”

(Islam, Ali b. Abi Taalib, Letters from Nahjul Balaagh)

“The Prophet said, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his brother what he likes for himself.”

(Islam, Hadith, Bukhari Vol 1, Book 2, # 12)

Islam: “No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.” Sunnah.

Zoroastrianism: “None desires inequity to his own self. Thus one should not do to others, what he does not desire for himself.” (Zoroaster, Hymns of Atharvan p. 230)

Zoroastrianism:  “Do to others as you would that they should do to you.” “Do not do to others that which you would that they would not do to you.” (ZOROASTER, Hymns of Atharvan p. 816)

“The basis of rectitude is equity (equal treatment for all). Do unto others what you would do unto yourself.” (ZOROASTER, Hymns of Atharvan)

“That nature only is good when it shall not do unto another whatever is not good for it’s own self.” (ZOROASTER, Dadistan-1 Dinik pp. 94-95)

Hinduism: “This is the sum of all true righteousness: deal with others as thou wouldst thyself be dealt by. Do nothing to thy neighbour which thou wouldst not have him do to thee after.” The Mahabharata.

Buddhism: “Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.” Udana-Varqa, 5:18.
