Back to Germany

We have gone back to Germany to see what has been happening while we were in Russia!

Block 1 and 5:  Rise of Nazism webquest Link 1 and Link 2.  We will continue the activity Wednesday and Thursday.

Block 2, 3, and 4:  Students watched a BrainPop about Adolf Hitler and read a summary of the Rise of nazism.  As groups finished, they began a web quest.  Write a 5-7 word summary for each of the pages you read.  Use your own paper for that.

Propaganda linkLook at 5 of the posters located on the link.  Choose ONE to answer the questions:

  1. What is the overall message behind the poster?
  2. How did the Nazis draw upon the emotions of the viewer? The logic and intelligence of the viewer?
  3. How did the poster portray Nazis? German citizens? Jewish individuals?

Our Unit 2 test will be on Dec. 6th.  Sounds far away doesn’t it?!?!  Don’t let that fool you!  Never too soon to start reviewing!  Topics so far:  Russian Revolution, Treaty of Versailles, and now, the Rise of Nazism.

Rainy Daze and Monday!

All classes participated in a Mock Election as we prepare for our stop in Germany Post-WWI tomorrow.  Our winner will be introduced tomorrow!

All classes took a Discovery Ticket today over the Russian Revolution as we prepare to leave the now Soviet Union….we will return though!

Discovery Ticket grades are in Synergy.  You may have heard me mention friends that no homework is a perfect time to spend 10-15 minutes reviewing material.  Look over notes, organize materials, talk about the lessons with a friend or parent.

Warm-Up #13 will be due on Friday!

Happy Halloween Boos and Ghouls!

Today students analyzed Document B-a German political cartoon.  If you did not complete the document analysis sheet (in the back of the packet).  Tomorrow…it’s all about the money!

PLEASE be safe tonight-look both ways and give your teacher unwanted tootsie rolls.
