Today we tackled the origins of WWII by beginning with an exercise over what you consider your four most important freedoms then comparing your responses to Roosevelt's 1941 speech. We then discussed the nature of Fascism and then spent the past part of class analyzing documents sets on how Hitler rose to power and created a Fascist state in Germany.
Tomorrow is your first in-class DBQ. Tonight you should look back over the materials from our Writing Workshop and everything posted on the Writing Tips page. The content for tomorrow's DBQ will be drawn from the Great Depression and the New Deal.
One final note: We have added a day to the unit next week, so please look over the changes in due dates on the calendar over the next few weeks! Of upcoming importance, the Exam next week is now Wednesday and the Scored Discussion on Thursday. The scored discussion materials are posted under Period 7 and this time covers aspects of the use of atomic weapons at the end of WWII.
