July 17



You wrote the Unit 2 WRA I at the start of class.  Today was another busy day. I started the Cold War with you today. I delivered a lecture on "The Origins of the Cold War", which was designed to give you the "big picture" of Cold War events and concepts. My assumption was, coming into today's class that you have already read Chapter 7. You should be completing the Chapter 7 key concepts and activities in the Google Doc outside of class time. You should always remember to link back all of this Cold War material to an ideological struggle between the USA and USSR. The USA was a democratic state, which emphasized the principles of individualism and advocated for a market economy, whereas the Soviet Union was a totalitarian dictatorship (under Stalin), communist state emphasizing the principles of collectivism, and advocating for a command economy. I showed you a short documentary from the BBC 20th Century History series called "Cold War Confrontations" and another video from the Turning Points of History series on the Korean War. There are notes in your Social 30-1 coursebooks on the timeline of key events of the Cold War, and the Korean War as well.

You wrote the Ideological Reaction to Industrialization Test at the beginning of class today, and I will post the results on HomeLogic today. reviewed how demand-side economics and supply-side economics respond to a recession after you were finished writing the test.
