Today we started by watching the People's History episode "The Fight for Medicare." We then read an debriefed an article from the Globe and Mail that compared Obamacare to the Candadian Medicare program. We learned how to more effectively read using a highlighter and marginal summary notes: the result is deeper reading and more understanding and retention.
After that we worked collaboratively in a Web 2.0 environment to curate information on the post-war vocab terms (other than the ones directly associated with the Cold War). Please use the link to access the Google doc to share your learning. I will leave the document open for a few days so that it can be completed. Everyone should do at least two definitions. That is your homework.
