Today I introduced the Spring paper and answered all questions. Most questions can be answered by going to the slideshow and working through it. I will put up the sign-up sheet for meetings with me about the paper tomorrow.
The rules are as follows:
You may sign up for ONE spot in each "section" (one for thesis, one after outline)
If you miss your appointment, you may not sign up for another
Once you've signed up, you may not change your appointment time.
Today we began a new unit! China!
We started by discussing Taoism, and students read an article and responded to it in writing. The article can be found in the files section.
We will go more in depth with Taoism, and begin Confucianism tomorrow.
You can't really play bingo alone, but...I'll go ahead and post the questions/answers so that you can see them. the whole thing can be found here:
Your test will be fill in the blank, multiple choice, and short answer.
Today was a work day for your LA papers, but tomorrow is the graded discussion.
Graded Discussion: Focus on the WHEN, HOW,WHY, and OUTCOMES of international intervention in African conflicts/problems. Does it help for the U.N. or other international groups to get involved? what is the ultimate outcome? What might help more? Are there other options? IS NOT ACTING/GETTING INVOLVED EVEN AN OPTION? Think about: What is the western world's responsibility to these nations? Did we create these problems? Do we have an obligation to help solve them? What about the idea of sovereignty?
