You had the entire class period to work on the activities in the "Philosophies of Industrialism" section of the Social 30-1 study booklet. The "Philosophies of Industrialism" is due tomorrow. When you finished this work you could have moved on to the Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions (which are due on Wednesday, March 4th).


I did a homework check on your French Revolution DBA today. We went through how to write a WRA I three source analysis assignment for the rest of the class. You will be writing a WRA I tomorrow in Room 109. Please go directly to the lab tomorrow. Your Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions are due tomorrow as well. One week from today, you'll be writing your Chapter 3-4 Test. I'm posting the study guide for this test below.


This test will be on Thursday, March 5th. It will consist of a matching section (10 key concepts) and a short answer section.
  • make sure that you study the PowerPoint presentation "Contending Loyalties"
  • make sure that you have read Chapters 3 and 4 (it is all testable material)
  • know the key concepts/key terms from Chapters 3 and 4 (please see the Unit 1 Worksheet for these)

I went through a lecture today on "Responding to Classical Liberalism and Industrialization". As I went through this lecture you should have completed the retrieval chart in your Social 30-1 workbook. I gave you some time to work on your Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions for the remainder of the period. Remember, these key terms and questions are due on Wednesday, March 4th.


I did a homework check on your Chapter 3 Key Terms and Questions at the beginning of class today. I finished off the "Contending Loyalties" PowerPoint presentation today, and then gave you the remainder of class time to work on your Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions, which are due on Friday. Please remember that your French Revolution DBA is due tomorrow (February 26th). I will be posting the Chapter 3-4 Test study guide on the blog tomorrow. I will be re-teaching how to write a three source analysis assignment tomorrow in class.

I did a homework check on your Chapter 3 Key Terms and Questions today. I went through the business cycle with you today, and I also went into more detail with the Keynesian economic response to the various stages of the boom and bust cycle. Please remember the "economic snapshots" of the various stages of the boom and bust cycle. We will re-visit this topic time and time again in Unit 2. You also had time to work on your Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions in class today. Your Chapter 4 Key Terms and Questions aren't due until Wednesday, March 4th.


We continued on with Unit 1 material today by looking at contending loyalties, contending non-nationalist loyalties and contending nationalist loyalties. Your Chapter 3 Key Terms and Questions are due tomorrow. Please remember that your French Revolution DBA is due on Thursday, February 26th. I will also be re-teaching how to write a WRA I three source analysis assignment on Thursday because you're writing your Unit 1 WRA I on Friday, February 27th in Room 109.

February 23


I went through a quick review of the 19th century political spectrum and the 20th century political spectrum, and then I talked about how classical liberalism and laissez faire capitalism emerged as the dominant political and economic ideology respectively during the Industrial Revolution. As I said in class, the Industrial Revolution has an important time period, as it changed society so profoundly economically, politically and socially that new political ideologies emerged to challenge classical liberalism. I will talk more about this later this week. I also started lecturing on economics today, discussing the problem of scarcity, different economic systems, basic economic values, and the basic economic questions that all economic systems must answer. I also started talking about Keynesian economics (demand-side economics) and the business cycle today. I will re-visit these last themes again tomorrow. Please remember that your Chapter 3 Key Terms and Questions are due tomorrow.


You wrote your Chapter 1-2 Test today in class, which took the entire period to write. Please remember that you will be writing your Unit 1 WRA I three source analysis assignment on Friday, February 27th. This is an in-class writing assignment, and prior to you writing it I will re-teach how to write these assignments. I was able to book us into a computer lab for this WRA I, so you won't have to write it by hand. Please remember that your French Revolution DBA is due on Thursday, February 26th.

Today, you had an opportunity to lighten your homework load this weekend. You had the entire period to work on your Chapter 3 Key Terms and Questions, this homework assignment is due on Tuesday, February 24th.


I went through the concept of expressions of nationalism with you today. If you missed class today, you need to get these notes from a classmate. I split you into small groups and had your brainstorm different examples of how people express their nationalism. We also talked about ranking the factors that led to the French Revolution. You were again in small groups for this activity, and had to rank what your group thought were the most important factors leading to the French Revolution. We had some discussion and debate about these factors. Please don't forget that you are writing your Chapter 1-2 Test on Monday, February 23rd. Don't forget that your French Revolution DBA is due on Thursday, February 26th.
