I was given a summer assignment for AP World History this summer which needs to be completed and returned to school on the first day for grading. I have been working on this 3 part assignment for 50+ hours. I have not seen the light of day in what feels like forever. This project involves analyzing 6 ancient civilizations (2-3 sentences per 6 of the topics that need to be researched for each of the 6 civilizations). For example, Ancient China (Qin Dynasty): find time period, important neighbors, strengths, weaknesses, impact on neighbors, and legacy (2-3 sentences for each topic). Then analyzing important leaders, same concept except 7 leaders and 9 topics. Part 2 involves defining 50 vocab words in your own words and telling why it was important to that time period. Part 3 involves a paragraph summary on each of the following terms: japanese colonialism, world war 2 (japans involvement), buddhism, and theravada buddhism. (that wasnt very hard). Second part to Part 3 involves reading The Harp of Burma. You need to read the whole book and write a paragraph summary on each of the 21 chapters. I have never gotten this amount of work before. Is there a law of any kind or something that restricts the amount of work given on a summer assignment or just homework in general?
