Today we debriefed Ex 16 from Falk. Next, students shared their biographical research on the Bolsheviks that we chose to research at the end of yesterday's class. I thought you did well identifying the important bits. After that, we debriefed DeMarco pp 44-54: please ensure you come to every class with your reading and notes completed: we have a small group and we all need to shoulder our portion of the load. I need everyone to be able to participate effectively during the "sharings" for us to get all that we can get out of the course. Remember that at the beginning I told you that you need t be exposed to the story BEFORE you hear it from me in a lesson.
Towards the end of the course I showed a 5-minute video on the Five-Year Plans as an into to tonight's reading. Please read the two handouts and answer either #2 or #3 (depending on what you indicated you'd do. The single sheet needs only brief responses - it is designed to give you practice connecting with primary sources as you investigate a topic. No DeMarco reading today - yippee.
