History 12-1: Hitler's Rise to Power
Today I began by asking, "How did Hitler come power?" Many of you had pieces of the answer; thanks for sharing. In the course, it is important to ask these basis questions from time to time in order to discover the holes in our understanding. I spent the next part of the lesson discussing the rise in popularity of the NAZI Party, but also identified key points along the road where different outcomes/decisions may have been made. Certainly, I think we have a better picture of the political spectrum in Germany at the time, and how the Weimar Constitution and the role of the President affected the outcomes.
For homework, please read Demarco pp. 96-101 and complete Ex #5. Also, please complete the Falk activity (Ex #9) on anti-Semitism.
