Monday, 26 May: All classes

Due to the time constraints, I have to compose an amalgamated, condensed blog post:

SS10: We discussed Laurier's term and watched  "A Nation of Cities" and "A New Map of Canada" from the People's History.  Please read pp. 246-250 for homework.

Hist12: We watched the second BBC documentary from the Howarth text and discussed a second short piece on the Cultural Revolution.  We also created a timeline to review China in the 20th century from the creation of the CCP in 1921 to the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989.  Tomorrow we will write our China unit test - there will be a writing section on a "source" prompt only: tell what you see; tell what it means; and then connect the larger topic and share your learning.

SS8-2: We worked to complete our study guides: some students are now working on their cumulative paragraphs. Everyone should be finished Ex 1-4 by Wednesday.

  1. Oops, Yukon joined Canada in 1898, not 1897 as I noted on the board.
