We began with a discussion of the political discussion questions that were assigned on Monday. That was followed by a detailed presentation about triangular trade, the middle passage, and the Columbian exchange. The Exploration maps and packets will need to be finished by Monday, December 4, which is also the day of the Exploration quiz.

I lectured on the slavery conflict in the U.S. during the 1840s and 1850s with a focus on the Compromise of 1850 and the Kansas-Nebraska Act. We then worked through exercises on writing good thesis statements.

Students worked on Exploration maps.  Political Discussion questions due tomorrow:

  1. What were peoples’/countries’ motives for exploring?
  2. What made the Age of Exploration possible (technology, economy, society)?
  3. What were the risks involved with Exploration?

Use information from your textbook, pages 95-101, to answer the questions.

Students reviewed Scientific Revolution biographies prior to re-taking the Scientific Revolution section of the Unit test. After all students completed the re-test, I introduced the task of drawing the explorers map.
