March 19

I started talking about the American Civil War today, and then started Episode 1 of the Ken Burns' The Civil War. We'll finish this video off tomorrow. I've decided to not to teach you specific battles in the Civil War, but rather look at the sectionalism between the North and South, and how the war ends, which will lead to the Reconstruction period. I also gave you back the 30-1 WRA I that you wrote while I was in New York for NHSMUN, this writing assignment was on the Cold War 

I delivered a lecture on the "Legacies of Historical Globalization in Canada" today. This presentation is on the Social 10-1 wiki under Unit 2 Presentations if you want a digital copy or hard copy. I gave you back your Unit 1 WRA II Essays today as well. 

You have your Unit 1 Final Exam on Wednesday, March 21st, please see the study guide below. 

Unit 1 Final Exam will be Wednesday, March 21st. The format for the exam is entirely multiple choice. It will consist of 55 multiple choice questions, 60-65% of the questions will be "source-based" questions, while the remainder will be simply knowledge and comprehension style questions. In other words, the source-based questions will use political cartoons, timelines, a chart or diagram, a graph, a reading, a photo or a map, and you will have answer questions related to that source. The source-based questions will be difficult to prepare for. You must have a firm grasp of the concepts and key terms that were introduced in Unit 1, because that will allow you to apply the knowledge that you have to answer the multiple choice questions.

Please study your key terms from Chapters 1-5, and the topics covered in that unit.
