Students worked on corrections for the Unit 7 objective test. After completing corrections, student groups selected review topics. They will work in these groups to complete topic charts to present to the rest of the class starting next Tuesday.

  • Tomorrow we will review the Unit 6 DBQ.
  • For those thinking ahead to the Unit 7 DBQ, consider major themes of the period: America’s rise to world leadership, post- WWII prosperity, the Cold War, the modern Civil Rights movement, Neo-Conservatism, etc.

Students took the “Setting the Stage for WWII” test today.  After completing the test, students picked up the WWII vocab packet.  The first seven items, through Pearl Harbor, need to be done for Monday.

Students watched an episode of The Century entitled “Over the Edge” which details the impact of the Great Depression on the rise of Nazism, and the tactics employed by the Nazis to consolidate their power. They then had time to work on completing the Setting the Stage for WWII packet which will be due Friday at the time of the test.

Students watched “A New World”, an episode from the series The Century, that highlighted several important social and cultural developments of the 1980s. For the remainder of the period, students read “Blindsided by History” about the football team from Central High School in Little Rock in 1957, and the reflections of some of those players 50 years later. The article appeared in the April 9, 2007 issue of Sports Illustrated.

Watch Summer of Love on The American Experience, airing at 8:00 p.m. tonight, Monday, April 23 on PBS (Channel 11 on Time-Warner Cable). Respond to the following:

A dream fulfilled, or forgotten?
In a famous story by Washington Irving, a man named Rip Van Winkle falls asleep for 20 years and awakes to a very different world. Imagine that one of the participants in the Summer of Love fell asleep that summer and didn’t awake until 2007; what would he or she think of life in the United States today? Have the hopes and ideals of that summer been fulfilled, or is it as though the Summer of Love never happened? Write a short essay this “Rip Van Hippie” might have written for a local newspaper describing what has, and what has not, changed since 1967.

  • You may respond as a comment to this blog entry (comments will not appear until Friday) or in writing.
  • All responses must be received by 3:00 p.m. Friday, April 27.

We completed the lecture notes over between-war problems and attempts and peace, and ideologies from the “Setting the Stage” packet. I then started a presentation on Europe in the 1920s, which I will complete tomorrow.
