Friday, March 22. 2013

Today's schedule is D-C-B-A-X

C Block Social Studies 10 - Today we will begin looking at the six factors that led to Confederation in 1867. First, we'll discuss the Civil War in the US, Manifest Destiny, and the Alaska Purchase of 1867. Take a look at:
PBS Ken Burns' The Civil War
John L. O'Sullivan on Manifest Destiny in 1839
Manifest Destiny
US-Mexican War Manifest Destiny
Alaska Purchase

B Block Social Studies 11 - Today we'll continue with our look at Canada's involvement in World War One. When we come back from Spring Break we'll focus on 1917 (Vimy, Passchendaele, Conscription, Women's Enfranchisement, Russian Revolution and the US entry into the war) and then the Paris Peace Conferences and the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. Today, I'll have you watch the Canada: A People's History episode "Go Out and Meet Death Bravely" along with the Crash Course movie below: "Archdukes, Cynicism, and World War 1". After you can finish the chart that you started yesterday which was to briefly explain each battle, identify Canada's role in them, and explain the results (impact). Don't forget to use the resources from yesterday's post for Ypres (2nd Battle), Somme, Vimy, and Passchendaele (3rd Battle of Ypres). Lastly I'll have you work on questions 1, 2, and 3 from page 39 and question 5 from page 47 of the Counterpoints textbook.

A Block Law 9/10 - Today you'll have time to finish your four parties to an offense activity from yesterday. During this I'll have a Law & Order episode on for you to watch "Black, White, and Blue"  The murder of a white teen-ager in Harlem seems like an open-and-shut case until two patrol officers are implicated in the crime.
