Looks like a revolution…the Russian Revolution!

Why did the Russian Army leave a war to go fight a war?!?!  We begin our quest today to get an answer.  Students met the Romanoff family and examined primary and secondary sources from the family’s perspective.

Absent?  Please see me during homeroom to get caught up for today’s episode!

VOCABULARY MAKE_UP TEST:  Was today..but I had written Oct. 18 thinking today was the 18th when in actuality it is the 16th so…..I will be here Wednesday the real Oct. 18th at 8:30 for those still needing to make-up the test.  Remember that the remediation activities and reflection should be completed.

Talk about a fast day….

Today in class we watched the CNN in 10  episode shown on October 6th.  If you were absent, feel free to watch at home!

We began a VERY quick chat about the causes of WWI…MANIA-militarism, alliances, nationalism, imperialism, and assassination.

Warm-Up #5 is due tomorrow.

Those interested in re-doing the vocabulary test have a remediation activity to complete before taking the retake on Monday @ 8:30.

Congratulations!

I am so proud of you!  You worked together and were really using your historical thinking!  The winner will be announced in time for a special treat on Fun Friday!

Today we did the breakout using our historical thinking to make an arrest in case anything were to happen in Sarajevo!

If you have not yet turned in the PEEL paragraph of Scramble for Africa, you may do so….before ZAP!

Grades are updated in Synergy for 2nd nine weeks.

Hope U had a great weekend…#gocanes!

All blocks took the Historical Thinking vocabulary quiz today.  Grades are updated in Synergy.  Some did great…others may want to go review with the quizlet on yesterday’s blog.

For tomorrow:  We will meet in the Media Center to solve a History Mystery!  You will need to be familiar with the vocabulary (or you won’t get past clue #1) and have your Sarajevo Sentinel read (time and place).

Absent?  Please see me to make-up your quiz in homeroom!
