History 12-2/12-3

Today was a work block to plan and research your Second World War mini-inquiry projects.  I'm sorry if I was unclear as to the due date - it is NEXT Friday, not tomorrow (not even I would give you a project to complete in two days while expecting you to prepare for a unit test on the same day).

Tomorrow we will have a unit test on the USA (in the 20s and 30s), the Middle East (1914-45) and India (1919 - 47).  There will be fewer objective questions (fill-in-the-blank, multiple-choice, and matching), the usual four what/so-what terms and a paragraph.  There will be no source question this time.  There will only be one prompt for the paragraph and I can tell you it will be on the effect of the Depression on all aspects of American society including the government.  Ensure you arrive having done a pre-write with lots of facts/evidence to support your work.  Here are some notes about the test - make sure you study the terms and know the names of the various documents (letters, reports, acts of government, etc) and what/who they concerned.

Review your DeMarco notes and your study guides.  The PPTs can be accessed via SlideShare.  Also, please ensure you bring work to do once you complete this "shortened" test.
