After taking so many notes yesterday, today we focused on introducing ourselves to World War I without spending all of class writing. :)
Students watched two videos about how and who started WWI and completed questions as they watched. They then read about Franz Ferdinand and Causes of WWI, completing accompanying crosswords for each. Students who did not finish in class were instructed to take the assignments home to finish and turn in on Monday. Students who are absent are responsible for completing this work to prevent getting behind in class.
There are two review videos with question sets at the end of the lesson. Some classes need to finish at home because we ran out of time. Those students should have their questions. However, if they don't click below and print a new copy. Students who are absent need to print and complete before returning to school in order to stay on track in class.
Today, students completed their Unit 4 vocabulary from Quizlet. They worked through a lesson on the Google Classroom using the Europe in South Asia notes organizer. This is to stay in their binder. Part of the lesson included a 9 minutes video on the Sepoy Rebellion, which students answered questions on for a grade. The two papers they completed are below. Everything else is on their Google Classroom. If they are absent or did not finish, it is their responsibility to finish tonight and turn it in tomorrow.
Lesson and classwork here! IF YOU WERE ABSENT TODAY, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO PRINT THESE AND COMPLETE YOUR ASSIGNMENTS! Otherwise, you will receive a zero for the missing work.
The Scramble for Africa reading passage has to be completed for homework by any student who did not finish it in class. Make sure you ANNOTATE the text! You are responsible for answering the text-dependent questions, the discussion questions, and for completing a thorough 3 sentence summary of the scramble for Africa.
Since we have a four day week and I am trying my best to be able to finish this unit and test on it Friday, we will be very busy in class. So I have decided to post the answers to the study guide that you all did in class last week. Check your answers since this is what you need to be looking over for your test. I highly suggest reading over this study guide at least once a day this week!
If you were absent, your question sets are in the "While you were out" folders in the classroom.
