And the winner is…


It is 1596 and the editor of Il Mondo, an Italian newspaper, has decided to run a feature comparing the influence of three city-states.  The editor has chosen to focus on Florence, Venice, and Genoa and told you to write an article that explains which city-state is the most powerful and use the experiences of all the city-states to support your assertion.


At first you struggle with how to approach this newspaper article, but then you create a plan that will make this task much simpler.  Your plan has the following steps:


  • Determine the criteria of what makes a city-state powerful


  • Compare the experiences of the three city-states based on the criteria you selected


  • Evaluate the effects of the experiences of the city-states


  • Draw a conclusion about which city-state was the most powerful


To make your newspaper article stronger, remember to include information about the experiences of all three city-states and explain why the city you chose is the most powerful.
