Socials 11: Tuesday: Paragraph and chapter debrief

You were each assigned one battle; 
if you were absent, do #3 Vimy Ridge.  
Note: Passchendaele was 1917.
Today we began by adding "so-what" details to yesterday's summary notes of the characteristics of the war.  Next, I returned the paragraphs about human rights (sorry for the delay).  I went over seven general points on the class's writing that were common areas of concern.  In summary, please remember to use "signpost" words in your next piece while being concise and precise in your word choice.  We also continued reviewing the chapter questions.  I hope you now have a better idea of the role of the navy and air corps (air force).  For homework I asked that you report approximately ten facts about the battle I assigned to you (who, what, when, where, why,  and how are good places to start).  Ask yourself, of all the battles in the war, what was it about these battles that made them worthy of our attention.

We agreed to have our First World War unit test on Thursday! Tomorrow we'll wrap up with the conscription crisis, review the five battles and then go over the test format and review (lots to do!).
