We reviewed the Congress of Vienna and students completed the Congress of Vienna page of their French Revolution packets. We then reviewed the French Revolution learning targets as a review for the unit test Friday.

I also played the Garmin Super Bowl ad featuring Napoleon.

We examined the impact of industrialization from the point of view of George Pullman’s failed experiment at Pullman, Illinois. Mrs. Atkinson came in to talk about AP exam registration. We then considered imperialism through the case study of the annexation of Hawaii.

The unit 5 test review bank is now available at The Testing Center.

We reviewed and turned in the Europe under Napoleon map, then talked about and completed the Napoleon page in the French Revolution packet.

I spent most of the period talking about monetary issues underlying the Populist Movement including:

  • The Coinage Act of 1873 (Crime of ’73)
  • The Bland-Allison Act (1878)
  • The Sherman Silver Purchase Act (1890)
  • The McKinley Tariff (1890)

I also used characters, settings, and events from L. Frank Baum’s novel The Wizard of Oz to help illustrate the Populist movement, especially the demand for silver coinage.

Students will turn in the “Divergent Paths to African-American Equality” worksheet.  We spent some time reviewing the Transcontinental RR film from last week, and started to talk about Jacob Riis’ How the Other Half Lives.

Students will work on the Radical Phase and Napoleon pages of the French Revolution packet.  If times remains at the end of the period, students will start working on the Europe under Napoleon map, which will be due Tuesday.

Sorry guys, I’m still gone.  I’m going to have you work on finishing Discourse for chapters 26-28.  You’ll have the vocab quiz on Monday.

Sorry kids!  I’m going to be out for at least the next couple of days with the flu.  Continue to turn in assignments a day behind the original schedule (due to the snow day) for now.  That means Labor Unions will be due today, “Mirror with a Memory” on Friday, and Farmer’s Dilemma on Friday.

Today, you will work to complete your wiki pages.  When you have finished, you will have time to work in Discourse chapters 26-28.

Have fun, and I hope to see you on Friday.

Today students watched the first part of the French Revolution, and excellent documentary from the History Channel.  Please complete the study guide as you watch the film.  We will watch the conclusion on block day.
