I started a PowerPoint lecture today called "Historical Globalization and Imperialism". I'll finish this lecture off tomorrow. So far we've talked about key concepts of Unit 2, such as historical globalization, "old" imperialism (God, gold, and glory) and "new" imperialism. Your Chapter 7 Key Terms and Questions are due tomorrow.

Here's a copy of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade animated graphic that I showed you in class today, it's pretty sobering.




I showed you a video from the BBC 20th Century History series called "Why Appeasement?", and while you watched this video you were supposed to answer the questions from the film study guide in your Social 20-1 booklets. We also completed the activity called "Was Appeasement a Good Idea?" which had you classify arguments for and against appeasement. I also taught you a new mnemonic device to remember that the League of Nations was a FAILURe. You should also be able to link FAILURe to two key events that led up to World War II, namely the Japanese invasion of Manchuria (1931) and the Italian invasion of Abyssinia (1935).
