Happy Spring! Today we started the Roaring 20's! The notes can be found on Google Classroom. We discussed how the decade is one of conflict between old and new ideas. Today we focused on the ideas of isolationism and nativism.
HW: Vocabulary #20 is due tomorrow
Today we learned all about World War I---in one class period! Unfortunately, World War I is not as "big" in US History as it is in Global History. I promised the students that I'll make it up to them for World War II! We discussed the MAIN causes, long-term and immediate causes as well as the impacts such as the Fourteen Points and the Treaty of Versailles.
HW: Vocabulary #20 is due Wednesday
Today we took Vocabulary Quiz #19. Afterwards, students completed a worksheet which reviewed key concepts associated with Imperialism.
Have a great weekend!
Today we learned about the impacts of the Spanish American War. We analyzed how the war helped America to become a world power. Additionally, we learned about how Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson continued the policy of imperialism during their presidencies.
Vocabulary Quiz #19 is tomorrow.
We began the class with a discussion about the National School Walkout and how students can be empowered to make changes in things that they are passionate about in their lives.
Afterwards, we went back to our lesson on imperialism. Today, our topic was the Spanish American War.
Vocabulary Quiz #19 will be on Friday.
It's a 2-hour delay! We're starting imperialism today! We delved into the topic by asking the question: what is imperialism? We also discussed the reasons why the United States became imperialistic.
Be sure to complete Vocabulary #19 if you did not already do so!
Some students needed time to finish Friday's test. While they were working, other students were able to work on Vocabulary #19.
