Here is a helpful video to understand Chapter 7, Section 4! Your homework assignment is to view the video and in the COMMENTS BUBBLE ABOVE, leave a comment (with your name and school email–leave “website” blank) on at least 1 DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMMUNISM AND CAPITALISM that you learned from the video, and also answer this question: “What will Santa Marx do?” This is due by CLASS TIME on Wednesday, 11/20.
So I’m at a workshop today, which means you get to hear my voice that I recorded last year in my really warehouse-y room (sorry for the echo!). I’ll walk you through how to create your DBQ outline, and then you can use your notes, book, etc. to create your OWN outline! I am mostly concerned with your thesis, brainstorm, and your GENERAL setup. IT’S AN OUTLINE…do NOT write the whole essay! Don’t worry, you’ll get to do that in later units.
Here is a link to the famous speech by Frederick Douglass that we will be reading today. As you read, think about our discussion questions. Also, put this speech in the context of the historical period in which it was given. What issues were facing Frederick Douglass, slaves, abolitionists, and the nation in July of 1852? How might Douglass’ speech be seen as a bold statement both in his era and in ours?
You do not need to read past “INTERNAL SLAVE TRADE,” although it is very interesting so feel free to keep going if you have time!
Here’s a little video to help you. Pay close attention to the following minutes: 0:00-3:39 (Information on the different cultural groups/divisions in Spanish empire), 5:26-7:16 (How Napoleon played a role in Mexico’s independence movement) and 8:00-end (Simon Bolivar and the effects of the revolutions: did they actually change anything?)
