Dear Class 10,

This week we are going to explore the life and times of Kublai Khan, the famous grandson of Genghis Khan, ruler of the Mongols.  

Please have a look at the information I have uploaded and prepare a reflective piece on your thoughts around the apparent double standard in Kublai Khan's principles:  on the one hand, he was tolerant of foreign religions and allowed them to be observed under his rule, but on the other hand, he established a social hierarchy based on race to ensure that the Mongols would remain the ruling class of his empire.  

Any questions, please email me:  ehill@lyss.vic.edu.au

Take care and stay well!
