Where learning is always sweet!

Two Mondays left my friends….

Wow!  Time is moving way too fast but we are still on the Learning Train and moving through Latin America!

Today:  Students received Warm-Up #23-due on Friday!  All classes compared the governments of Cuba, Mexico, and Brazil.

All students received the permission slip for the Didgeridoo Show on May 17th.  Please return that and the $6 as soon as possible so plans can be finalized!  If absent, please stop by in the morning to pick up your slip!

And we are back!

Today we began examining the Cuban Revolution of 1959 and will follow the developments of Cuba until today.  We will even predict the future for our island neighbor!

We will have a test over the Latin American history unit on April 26th.  There will be several reviews in class as we pull it all together as we have had several interruptions.  Of course, studying at home is also necessary.  Our test topics will include:

Ancient civilizations (Aztecs and Incas), our friends the Revolutionary leaders, Cuban Revolution, and Latin America today.  Heads up:  all classes will have a document to analyze and an extended response!
