Students reviewed the concepts of Nationalism and Imperialism, and I presented a brief overview of Latin American social structure of the 18th and 19th centuries.

I then gave students time to work on the monuments project described on the second page of the Nationalist Revolutions packet.

We discussed the inauguration for the first part of the period.  For the last part of the period I distributed the Nationalist Revolutions packet and explained the concepts of nationalism and imperialism.

We spent time reviewing the causes of the Industrial Revolution, the ways that life changed as a result of the Industrial Revolution, the reaction of the middle class to the Industrial Revolution, and economic philosophies that developed in response to the Industrial Revolution.

The take-home test, as well as the Industrial Revolution packet, is due on Tuesday at the beginning of class.

2nd hour students played the Industrial Revolution game, after which we looked at a series of pictures and discussed how they were related to the Industrial Revolution.
In 7th hour, we started with information about child labor laws in England, then we looked at the pictures, and near the end of the period started with the I.R. game.

We spent most of the period working through a simulation of trust-building and discussed factors leading to the rise of trusts, their organization, their strengths and weaknesses.
