History 12-1: 1914 Map of Europe/Wilson's 14 Points (Day 1)

Today I started by collecting your revised 1919 paragraphs (although it seemed some of you didn't actually revise them?).  Next, I shared my method for learning the map of Europe using the four similarly-sized "signpost states."  Here are some visuals:

We then began our reading of Exercise Three from the Falk workbook.  I reviewed some strategies for doing close readings of  "dense" passages.  Get those pointer fingers out and don't forget to "mumble read" aloud.  I "translated" the preamble and asked you to read the remainder (including completing the questions) for homework.
