WE WILL WRITE OUR TEST ON MONDAY IN "A" BLOCK
(SO THAT WE CAN PARTICIPATE IN A STUDY OF NATIONALISM THAT WILL LIKELY OCCUR AT 9:00 TOMORROW).
Today we started by looking at a few more political cartoons to see how we can systematically interpret them. I thought that by the last example you were all being insightful and probing in your interpretations. Remember to slow down and think about all of the parts and all of the cues before you try to write.
Next, we looked at one another's sketch notes. All of them had creative elements and you did well trying to incorporate the different design tricks that we examined in our "lesson" yesterday. I hope you see how this process, while time consuming, is a good way to deepen your understanding and memory on any topic.
Next we watched the video Make Germany Pay and collaboratively answered Falk's Ex 11. I created a timeline (similar to the one that will be on the unit test) and made connections to the two sketchnotes I posted yesterday to highlight the key ideas you should study for the test. Remember that #1-16 on page 2 of the workbook are the terms on the what/so-what page of the test (you can include "reparations" "Maginot Line" "Polish Corridor" and "League of Nations"). The paragraph prompt on the test is: Evaluate the outcomes of the 1919 Treaty of Versailles.
