During mid-semester in World History AP, Mr. Archbald made us complete an essay comparing the Han Dynasty to the Roman Empire. We were suppose to use the P.I.R.A.T.E.S. technique which allowed people to easily breakdown the characteristics of any civilization. I had to compare the Political, Religious, and Social aspects of Rome and Han China. I recieved a 24/31 which averages to a 77%. To start, he claimed that my thesis was "unclear" which I argue is not true, but because of it, he deducted my grade from a 93% to a 77% or 24/31 to a 29/31.
