20th Century Homework Week 1

Filed under: Uncategorized — kbagdanov @ 8:06 pm

After today there will be handouts in class for you to read at home, as well as links here, to take you to sites where you can gather more information about the events we are discussing in class.  The links are meant to add information to what we are doing in class for high school students.  Parents of younger students can decide whether or not to include the additional reading.  (Or, parents can read the links and tell their younger children about the information contained within them.)

As we begin our study of the 20th Century we need to do a little background work.  Students who are in high school are required to read the following links about Imperialism.  There are 5-6 links to read through, each of them talks about a different European country and it’s holdings in other countries.  Younger students would benefit from a discussion of imperialism if parents wish to read the material and have a discussion.  This would also be an excellent time to pull out a world map and locate the areas being spoken of.  Most of us are not familiar with the geography of Africa and Asia, but an understanding of it will greatly aid in our study of this century.
