    Task: Read ch. 18 section 1 in The Americans. After reading watch you will love history 7.2 the Cold War Begins. While reading and watching the video here are some guiding questions that can help you with your note taking.

    Which one of the 3 main achievements did the U.S.S.R. not follow through with after the Yalta Conference? Did U.S. soldiers and U.S.S.R. soldiers ever fight during the Cold War? Did Stalin know that the U.S. had the atomic bomb before it was used? What was the Iron Curtain and what did it separate? What is containment and why did the U.S. adopt this policy? What actions did the U.S. take after adopting containment? Also, while watching the video pay attention to the Truman Doctrine, the Marshall plan, and the Berlin Airlift. Remember the goal is to get familiar with terms and events that we will be talking about next week.

    ***There will be a discussion where you can post your notes. This is optional. If you feel like you dont need practice and are comfortable with posting in discussions then you do not need to post your notes there. We will be using discussions on canvas in the coming weeks, so please practice using discussions if you need to.***

    Overview: More practice with discussion posting, communication with peers.

    Task: Go to canvas and find the discussion titled, What are you doing to stay busy/have fun? While Mr. Robinson and I were video chatting with a few students today we noticed that everyone seems to be getting bored. So, for today all we want you to do is write down what you've been doing to stay busy/have fun. Write about what games you've been playing, what have you been watching on t.v. or Netflix. What book(s) have you been reading or anything else you've been doing to have fun. The point of this assignment is to practice writing in discussions and give you ideas on how to ease boredom while in the house. Make your post and come back after a few hours to see if anything anyone else is doing sound like it could be fun. Please participate and have fun! If you have a connection with another student then comment and talk about your shared interest!

    FEEDBACK:

    A "healthy" online discussion was held in Canvas as many students posted & commented on the coronovirus cartoons and the impact that the closure is having on LIFE.  Later in the afternoon, Mr. Hartman, Mr. Robinson, and two students participated in our first-ever TEAMS video "chat!"  It was good seeing familiar faces & hearing voices that have been isolated...stay healthy and active, and please DO YOUR WORK while being KIND to the people you are living with, it can make a real difference during these trying times!

    FEEDBACK: 

    As of 9:15 PM on Tuesday, ONLY 5 more students completed the first FORMS "survey" designed by Mr. Hartman.  Tomorow evening (3/25), students can log in and check their results.

     

    Regarding TODAY's Political Cartoon Analysis: 

    THREE focused, tech-saavy and motivated students sent in cartoon analysis via Canvas.  Do NOT feel bad if you examined the cartoons and did NOT submit work, that part was more of a "soft invitation" IF you wanted share your writings.  Taking notes or staring a "file" of your thoughts was sufficient too.  If you simply opened the PowerPoint and looked at the cartoons, your effort is appreciated.  Mr. Hartman and I are contemplating using DISCUSSION app via Canvas.  If you see this message, please feel free to reply IN CANVAS...in the DISCUSSION app area.  Make sure you know that your writings will become visible by your peers, and that ALL communication is school-appropriate.

    Watch you will love history 6.6 the Homefront: while watching use these questions to try and guide your note taking. How were minority groups treated during the war (both on the battlefield and at home) did things get better, worse, or stay the same back home? (think about racism and discrimination) Lastly, ask yourself what was going on at home? (Who was working in place of the men? How could everyone contribute to the war effort? What government agencies were created during the war and what did they do?) 

    Read Ch. 35 of History Alive ***you only need to read sections 4, 5, 6, and 8*** while reading here are some questions that should guide your note taking. Why were Japanese Americans sent to internment camps? What opportunities did women have at home and in the military? What was the Double V Campaign (35.6)? What were the zoot suit riots (35.8)?
