The Vocabulary of WWI

Today in class we began to take a look at the various "-ism's" that are part of WWI.  Most importantly, this included nationalism, militarism, and imperialism.  We began to explore what we knew (or didn't know) about these words today and are going to read about them tonight.

Students either need to read the beginning of the Lesson 17 handout or the entire Blue Textbook reading assignment, depending on what they were given in class.

First Day Back

We survived our first school day of 2017.  Today we took a quick look at our outlines as well as talking about continuing our research projects the rest of the year.  We are wrapping up the Civil War and students had one of two writing assignments to read for Wednesday.  Those can be found here and here.  We will hopefully be moving quickly on to the World Wars before the end of January!
