1. Why did Christianity take hold in the ancient world?
TWO of MY FAVOURITE EXCERPTS from MY DBQ Essay
↪copy & paste from your reflection
Excerpt #1: Giving the evidence, it is logical that the Christians stood proudly on their feet and admitted they were Christian, even though they would be persecuted later on. This shows a lot of bravery and how much the Christians dedicated themselves to this religion.
Excerpt #2: In The First Paul, it states that Roman’s ideas and Christianity both end and convey peace. However, there’s a contrast between the two approaches. The document states that Roman ideology first starts with violence, victory, and then finally peace. In comparison, Christianity discloses that peace starts with nonviolence, then justice, and lastly, peace. Perhaps the most convincing reason for this evidence is that Christianity spread through by conclusively allowing Christians or converts to make an opinion and choice if they wanted violence in their life or justice throughout.

2. My Biggest Takeaway
↪ What is your BIGGEST TAKEAWAY (BIGGEST LEARNING) from our STUDY OF THE ORIGINS & SPREAD OF CHRISTIANITY?
My biggest takeaway from our study of the Origins and Spread of Christianity was that Christianity originated as a Jewish religion. I found the origin really interesting because I thought that everything started with just Jesus born INTO the Christian community instead of being born a Jew.
3. Visualizing Text- Sketchnoting
↪How did sketchnoting help you understand how Christianity originated and spread?
Sketchnoting helped me understand how Christianity originated and spread. This was because I drew it myself with my own design and visuals so that I could understand the facts well even though other people might not. It might not be as effective to me as just writing down a bunch of words on a piece of paper, but I also really like unlocking my inner art-self and draw.
↪What did you learn about yourself as a visual notetaker?
As a visual notetaker, I realized after a few sketchnotes that I drew that it doesn’t matter whether any of your friends doesn’t understand what your notes convey but it matters whether YOU understand it well or not.

4. Goal Setting
↪ What is ONE of your GOALS for social studies?
One of my goals in social studies is that I can have a huge index of simple visuals for sketchnoting by the end of the school year. Having an index of visuals would help me sketchnote better and also it’s not that time-consuming thinking of a hard drawing to do.
