Morett, Xavier P.6 WHAP September 26, 2013 Chapter 5 Outline- The Classical Period: Directions, Diversities, and Declines I. By 500 C.E., much of the civilizations of the Classical era had declined and ultimately fallen to multiple factors, including plague, economic collapse, political stability, famine, and invasions from outsiders. While some were able to bounce back using government or religion, others remained in ruins for quite some time. Despite this decline however, there was much diversity and innovation elsewhere in the world during this time period and major religions began taking their hold over several civilizations. II.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
