Our next class together will be on Tuesday, May 22nd. You're writing the Unit 1 Final Exam on that day. Please see the study guide below. You will need to study for this exam completely on your own. I have taught this material to you already (for the most part), some of the content was taught in Grade 11, and some in the first semester of Grade 12. You need to use the study guide below to prepare for this exam. Study hard people!

  • Know the values and ideas associated with the various ideologies (on the 19th century and 20th century spectrums)
  • Study the Individualism and Collectivism booklet that is in your study booklets (pages 11-15)
  • you need to be able to apply your knowledge and understanding of these concepts/ideas
  • there are a lot of source-based questions on this exam! (there are references to Nazi Germany, the USSR)

You had the entire period to work on your Chapter 9 Key Terms and Questions. These are due on Thursday, May 17th. I collected the Unit 2 Research Projects (dossiers or Prezis) today. For every day that you hand an assignment in late you lose 10%. You should get your Unit 2 essays back tomorrow. We'll look at Canada's foreign policy tomorrow.

I gave you the Unit 3 WRA II essay question sheet today, and a handout on how to analyze a source as well. I split you into groups and each group worked through an analysis of the source, and came up with one argument that agreed with the source's perspective and one against. You put all of that information on to a flip chart sheet. You also needed evidence to back up your position. Tomorrow, please go directly to Room 241, and when you're in class, take a photo of your group's sheet. I'll have a Google Doc set up and you will able to edit the Google Doc and analyze the source and put your arguments and evidence in the Google Doc. You won't be able to access the Google Doc on Thursday when you're writing the essay, so you'll need to write out what arguments and evidence you want on to your essay question sheet. The essay question sheet is the only thing that you'll be allowed to have out when you write your essay in class on Thursday. On Tuesday, May 22nd, you will be writing your Unit 3 Final Exam, please see the study guide below.

Please make sure that you have read Chapters 10-14. Please make sure that you have the following PowerPoint presentations, and that you study from them:

  • "Foundations of Economic Globalization"
  • "The Expansion of Economic Globalization"
  • "Challenges and Opportunities of Economic Globalization"
  • "The Impact of Economic Globalization on Environments"
  • "Globalization and Sustainability"
Make sure that you have reviewed the Key Terms from Unit 3 (all the terms listed on the Unit 3 Worksheet, plus the extra key terms that appeared in the PowerPoint presentations). The Unit 3 Final Exam will consist of 50-60 multiple choice questions.
