Homework - 7th grade
We have spent the last 2 weeks looking at Hinduism and Buddhism.  Next we turn our attention to India's history.  Our initial focus will be on the first empire - the Mauryan Empire and Emperor Asoka.  Then we will look at the British take-over of India; a period known as the British Raj.  We will examine how the British controlled the country and how they eventually lost power.  Our review will end with an in-depth look at Gandhi and the subsequent split of India into a primarily Hindu portion (India) and primarily Muslim portion (Pakistan and Bangladesh).
