History 12: China after the Civil War
Today we debriefed yesterday's exam and then discussed DeMarco, pp. 184-91. We also watched the BBC segment about Mao and the Civil War and then completed the study guide. Please make sure you are familiar with the summary sheet I gave you about China. There are a few "big ticket items" (such as the Hundred Flowers Campaign and the Great Leap Forward) that you have to get straight. In general, I want you to be able to compare and contrast the way communism was instituted in China and Russia. Tomorrow we'll carry on with China. Please have the rest of the DeMarco chapter completed for Monday.
