Students watched The Mission. The Mission examines the events surrounding the Treaty of Madrid in 1750, when Spain ceded part of South America to Portugal, thereby modifying the Treaty of Tordesillas . Two European forces are on hand to win the South American natives over to imperialist ways. The plunderers want to extract riches and slaves from the New World. The missionaries, on the other hand, want to convert the Indians to Christianity and win over their souls

Students watched Uncle Tom’s Cabin. This film is based on the novel by Harriet Beecher Stowe, and is an example of the work of reformers who were inspired, at least in part, by the 2nd Great Awakening.

Students discussed the concept of democracy and what it means to be democratic in the context of the transition to the Jacksonian Era in the United States, and what that means politically, economically, and socially. For the last part of the period, students worked to complete their Jacksonian Era wiki pages.

The objective part of the test on Tuesday will be closed-book and closed-note.
