FIRST OFF, PLEASE TAKE NOTE!!!
Due to popular outcry from folks with multiple exams on Friday, the exam WILL NOT move after all. To be clear, the APUSH EXAM WILL BE THIS THURSDAY!!! There will NOT be a short answer portion this time, however!
This means the online submission for the last scored discussion will also be due Thursday evening by midnight! The next scored discussion will still be next Monday and the readings can be found under Period 7 on the website.
So on to discussing today... We started off the day with a discussion over essential freedoms and compares our top four list to the one proposed by Roosevelt in 1941 as WWII was ramping up in intensity. We then explored the roots of fascism as a response to political and economic turmoil in Europe after World War I and then expolred its links to Hitler and the Nazi's rise to power and their economic policies. We ended the day be starting work on four WWII Homefront Topic Stations focusing on the Zoot Suit Riots, Women in WWII, African Americans and WWII, and the role of media. Whatever you didn't finish of these stations in class needs to be finished as homework.
One last note: I forgot to include Alfred Mahan's Sea Power and World History on the list of DocBlock assignments I will be checking on THURSDAY DURING THE EXAM! ;)
