I hope you had a wonderful weekend. This week we are moving World History from the Cold War into current issues. We will discuss the history of major foreign policy decisions with other countries that continue to affect the United States today. We will also see how the end of the Cold War created a world with new questions. On Thursday this week, I have included a survey of major topics we can discuss during our last few classes. Please select the topic which you find most interesting. I will use those topic to guide my planning for next week. Please pay attention to the learning opportunities this week as they are preparing you for Civics and American History (and a little Economics). Doing the work now will help you be more successful over the next few years.
As always, if you have any questions or just want to say hello, please feel free to email me!
I hope you have a great week!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Welcome back to another week of learning opportunities. As always, these learning opportunities are located in Google Classroom. This week you will be learning about the beginnings of the Cold War and the issues that developed during that timeframe. The Cold War was a battle of ideologies between the US and USSR. Throughout this week, you will learn about their ideological and proxy battles. This week you will also learn about history directly affecting present day. In most activities, I have included a present day conflict that extends from these events. Please look at these and let me know what you think. We have reached the point where you can truly see the impact of history on today. As always, email me if you have any questions or would just like to say hi.
Have a great week!
Welcome back! This week’s learning opportunities will be on World War II. These learning opportunities will allow you to complete a virtual breakout (similar to an escape room) and visit several interactive museums. As always, feel free to send me emails or message me in Google Classroom if you have any questions. I miss you!
Have a great week!
Welcome back to another week of learning opportunities! This week we will enter the twentieth century to discuss World War I. I know many of you have been waiting for this topic, so I have tried to compile this week’s learning opportunities carefully. You will have the opportunity to explore World War I and other events occuring during the war including the Russian Revolution and the Spanish Influenza. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me or message me on Google Classroom. Also, last week was National Library Week, so I have included some of my favorite books on my webpage. Feel free to share any of your recommendations with me! I look forward to seeing your participation this week!
Have a great week!
Also, if you want an easier way to access Google Classroom on your phone, I would recommend downloading the Google Classroom App in your phone’s app store. It is really easy to see the learning opportunities that way!
I hope you had a great Spring Break! As usual, this week’s learning opportunities will be available in Google Classroom. This week we will turn towards addressing nationalism and imperialism. These two topics go together as nationalism often inspired imperialism. Please keep working on the learning opportunities. Next week, we will enter the twentieth century with World War I. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to email me. I do enjoy hearing from you guys! Also, parents please email me if you would like to be added to Google Classroom so that you can see the available learning opportunities.
Hope you have a great week!
I hope everyone has a wonderful Spring Break! The next set of learning opportunites will be offered after Spring Break. As always, feel free to email me if you have any questions.
Welcome back to another week of virtual learning!
This week you will be learning about industrialization. This time period was one of dramatic change for people. Slowly, people left cottage industries (the work from home method of the day) for factories. This movement completely transformed their society (I am sure many of you know about changing society right now). All learning opportunities and resources will be available for you in Google Classroom, and you will be given an opportunity to look at many sides of history. As always, if you have any questions please feel free to email me or send me a message in Google Classroom. I have enjoyed hearing from many of you this week.
Also, remember to check who the Quizziz winners were in your class through Google Classroom!
I miss all of you, and I hope you are learning while we are away!
In Google Classroom, I will be posting a list of learning opportunities that you can do to continue learning while school is out. These topics have been specifically chosen because they are important prior knowledge you will need for future history courses. While you are not required to turn any assignments in (they are for your growth), please consider responding to discussion board posts and participating in activities over the coming weeks. It is highly encouraged that you take these learning opportunities seriously, as they will help you in the future. This week we will focus on the Enlightenment (extremely important for future history courses) and revolutions.
Finally, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I will be available via e-mail throughout the school closure. You can e-mail me with questions, problems, or just to say hey (I truly miss seeing you guys). If you have a question about World History, please reach out. I would love to help you get the best answer possible.
