Application of Rubric
In the ancient world, China was an advanced country, primarily due to very fertile land, and geographical features that provided the people living within it outstanding protection from attackers. Fertile land was key to having a great civilization. The fertile land caused there to be a food surplus, which meant the Chinese didn’t have to worry about food storage, or how much food they ate every meal. Instead, the Chinese could get ahead of every other society, and work on other important things, such as building a stable government, and creating a strong education in which the smartest of the people could be a part of the government. Another benefit of China’s geography is the protection it generates. With mountains to the west, the Pacific Ocean to the east and south, and a desert just north of China, they have an enormous fortress. The natural protection meant the Chinese could carry on with their daily lives without worrying about an attack. The Chinese didn’t need to worry about food or protection of their land, so the focus was all on making life better and easier. (Thus the invention of gunpowder, a smallpox vaccine, and block printing.) China was a developing society, and with the help of geography, this great society grew even faster.
What I needed to work on:
The Mongolian leader Khubilai Khan conquered ancient China in 1271, thus creating the Yuan dynasty, consisting of a Mongolian government and a very strong army. A positive assessment of his leadership would be complimenting his military success. At the time, Khubilai Khan had the biggest and most powerful army the eastern world had ever seen. Each soldier was strong, fierce, and disciplined. Also, Kubilai Khan lead his army with much thought, as they traveled with the art of surprise through the rivers, and they demonstrated great strength through their archery abilities and their greatness on horseback. Even though there was a desert in the north of China, the Mongols still got through to attack them. However, Kubilai Khan’s governing style was rude, and mostly plain unfair. One unfair thing he did, was that he split the Chinese society into three different races; Mongols, non-Chinese, and Chinese (or Chinese like cultures.) Not only that, but he also mistreated the Chinese, and only treated the Mongols and visitors fairly. This means he didn’t allow the Chinese to govern their own country, or to be in any position of leadership. Though, the Mongolians made a mistake. Whenever the Mongolians needed to elect a new ruler, they would return to Mongolia. With all the unfairness, and the disrespect directed to the Chinese community, rebellions were created. So when the Mongolians went to go back to their homeland to find a new ruler, the Chinese rebelled against them and took their country back. The mistreatment of the Chinese people, and the obvious government flaw, lead to the end of the Yuan Dynasty.
what i needed to work on:
Growing in Faith is a personal journey, it is unique for everyone
It is to unravel the Mystery of Faith/Life
To fail (sin) and to be forgiven=a learning experience
To overcome the obstacles God has put in front of you
To understand that God has a path for you
But Moses’ hands grew weary, so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat on it, while Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side. So his hands were steady until the going down of the sun.
1 Samuel 12:24:
"But be sure to fear the LORD and serve him faithfully with all your heart; consider what great things he has done for you."
"Now therefore go, and I will be with your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.”

how my writing has improved
China's geographical influence assisted it a lot.
In the ancient world, China was an advanced country, primarily due to very fertile land, and geographical features that provided the people living within it outstanding protection from attackers
The land was fertile, so China had a surplus of food.
This meant that they could focus on other things, such as education.
To:The fertile land caused there to be a food surplus, which meant the Chinese didn’t have to worry about food storage, or how much food they ate every meal.
Eventually, money was standardized
China was a developing society, and with the help of geography, this great society grew even faster.
This presentation is a showcase of my personal and academic growth over the year.
As Pope Francis has stated:
"Although the life of a person is in a land full of thorns and weeds, there is always a space in which the good seed can grow. You have to trust God."
