The breadth and depth of changes to the planet resulting from the Columbian Exchange was our primary topic today. We started off by discussing your Chapter 2 reading and notes, and ended the day talking about writing document analyses using the HAPP format. I have posted the description of each of the four sections of an HAPP analysis below. You need to complete a practice analysis of the document by Bartolome De Las Casas under the DocBlock Recitations heading on the "Period 1" page of this website (or at THIS LINK). A good analysis is written in complete sentences, is detailed and specific, and takes about the front of one page to complete. We will debrief and critique your practice attempts on Monday. Also, don't forget that your Chapter 3 notes are due Monday as well. Have a great weekend!
Today we discussed major take-away's from your summer assignments, particularly the reasons for historical difference in the three introductory chapters you read and implications to be deafen from the Silas Deane reading. We then conducted a cultural comparison exercise to help us see and analyze a familiar historical event with fresh eyes. We lastly used our analysis of some popular media to critique representations of pre-Columbian Indigenous American cultures.
For the class periods that due to fire drills, etc. did not get to finish evaluating the primary and secondary source materials related to this exercise, be sure to look those over tonight ands be prepared to discuss them in class tomorrow. Also, Chapter 2 notes are due. Below you will find the note taking guidance we offered in class. Remember, you do not have to set your textbook notes up in a four-square like the image, only that you should focus on identifying the types of information outlined in the image as you are taking notes in your preferred style.
Welcome to the Spring Semester, 2020, APUSH students! Don't forget that your summer assignments are due the first day of class and that you will be taking an assessment over that material! See you Tuesday!
