Today I issued some study guides to round out the information you have on the Nazis' rise to power in 1933. First, we revisited the German political spectrum and also noted the different organization within the Nazi Party. Next, we looked at a graphic organizer that reviewed the different elements at play in the Weimar Republic from 1919 to 1933. We also used the laptops to research the election outcomes for the Nazi Party in the Reichstag elections from 1920 to 1933. We then completed a study guide that centred on the events of 1933 that led to Hitler's Enabling Act. We debriefed the DeMarco reading from yesterday, and I assigned the rest of Chapter 7 (including Ex 4-7) for homework. We concluded by beginning a discussion on the 1934 Night of the Long Knives.
Please remember to ask your C-block instructors if it would be possible for you to offset a C block with an A block in order to share a presentation on the Holocaust with Mr. Toppings class.
Note: the PPT on the Putsches is on page 2 of my Slideshare account (yellow title page) and the PPT on the Night of the Long Knives is at the bottom of page 1.
