We ranked the ten scientists we learned about for the Scientific Revolution.  In second hour, Andreas Vesalius won, followed by Isaac Newton, and then William Harvey in third.  Harvey won in both 4th and 5th hours, with Newton 2nd and Vesalius 3rd in 4th hour, and Vesalius 2nd and Nicolaus Copernicus 3rd in 5th hour.

On Monday we will begin our examination of the Enlightenment.

Students completed the “Introducing the Scientists” activity in groups, then took notes on several more scientists of the Scientific Revolution.  At the end of the period, students worked on ranking the scientists in order of importance according to criteria they developed.

We completed the exploration learning targets with an overview of the Ming naval expeditions of Zheng He, and the isolationism of the Tokugawa Shogunate, with the resulting push for industrialization with the Meiji Restoration.

I then introduced the Scientific Revolution/Enlightenment unit and distributed the packets.

We reviewed several Antebellum reform movements, including abolitionism, women’s rights, temperance/ prohibition, public education, treatment of the mentally ill, and utopian communities. Tomorrow we will go over the DBQ question and documents before discussing Bleeding Kansas.

“Enlarging the National State” is due tomorrow. BTW “British Cession” is the same as the “Convention of 1818.”

Don’t forget the objective test is Friday!  Find the review questions at The Testing Center.

We (nearly) finished the unit 3 presentations.  Have a great Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to do the Elizabeth Cady Stanton/ Frederick Douglass homework for Monday, 11/26.
