We graded chapters 27 and 28 on the study guide. That turned out to be only chapter 27 in the 13th edition.  You will not need to read pp 654-678 for block day and Friday, nor will you be responsible for chapter 28 on the unit 5 test.

We then considered the challenges of the Panama Canal.

  • Students took the French Revolution Map Quiz.
  • Following the quiz, groups presented their arguments for and against returning Napoleon from exile to resume power.
  • I made a few introductory comments about the Congress of Vienna. Students are to complete the Congress of Vienna page of the French Revolution packet using their textbooks as well as the French Revolution reading packet.

Students played the roles of African-Americans born into slavery in 1845. They were asked to imagine being introduced for the first time to the ideas of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois. They then chose partners, and took the role of one of the two leaders, and after preparing, each interviewed the other. As a class, we discussed the main ideas of each leader, and evaluated the strengths, and possible weaknesses of the two approaches.

  • From this point forward, there will be daily reading assignments. For next week students will be responsible for the following:
    • 1/29- pp. 626-637
    • 1/30- pp. 638-653
    • 1/31, 2/1- pp. 654-666
    • 2/2- pp. 666-678.
  • Review questions are now posted for the unit 5 objective test at TheTestingCenter.com. See me if you have lost your password. These questions are not the same ones that will appear on the test, but cover the same content.
