Where learning is always sweet!


Blocks 1 and 2:  Today we worked on the Rise of Nazism webquest.  I hope that you are beginning to understand how Hitler used his position within a democratic government…to become a dictator.  The completed webquest is due on Monday!   Tomorrow we will meet in the 21st century classroom to see how propaganda helped him as well!

Blocks 3, 4, and 5:  Today we completed Doc D in class (this is a learning evidence grade).  Your homework is to complete a one question survey found in FORMS on Office 365.  You will be taken to the 365 sign in and then to the survey.  LINK:


The Office 365 sign in is [email protected].  Password is student ID.  Do you recall if you have accessed the Office 365 sign in?  Perhaps last year?  There is a support link on the parent tab. (It might be “students”)

The 15 days of thankfulness-today I am thankful for students who visit my blog!  Thank you!

Hello Weekend!

Today we watched the October 19th edition of CNN News in 10.  Warm-Up #6 was turned in as well.

Investigative teams completed Document B2 analysis and the document analysis sheet.

Look over your document analysis…we now have evidence for the loss of land and the loss of military-which would you think is a stronger reason that would lead to WWII?

Friday Eve is upon us!

We are working through our Treaty of Versailles DBQ and boy, I am so proud of you!  It is hard but so worth it-your brains are getting stronger every day!

There is no official homework but looking over the events of the day is always recommended.  Today we looked at document A-2 to gather evidence.  All classes finished the document analysis for that document as well.  We will look closer at Document B-2 tomorrow!

All students completed the background essay to determine “time and place” of the Treaty of Versailles.  Most classes moved on to the Document A1 and A2-addressing the German loss of land.

There is no homework today.

and it is only Tuesday

All classes began the DBQ “How Does the Treaty of Versailles lead to World War II?”  We did some time travel to 1919 to look at the mood of the time with our background essay.  We will be working on the DBQ all week.

Warm-Up #6 was given today-it is due on Friday.

Rainy Daze and Monday

What an icky morning!  And a long day to get back into our normal schedule!

ALL BLOCKS:  We wrapped up the Russian Revolution today.  Your timeline is due TOMORROW (Tuesday).



5 events from 1895-1922 (information from both Teacher Notes and Russian Revolution graphic organizer)

Each year/event is identified, in order, spelling and capitalization count.

ALL text in pen, images detailed, and NEATLY colored.  Use space wisely-don’t draw tiny images-make space for details to tell about the Rise of Communism in Russia.
