STUDY OVER THE WEEKEND FOR YOUR EXAM ON MONDAY.

 

BRADLEY WORLD HISTORY FOR FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 2021

 

 

YOU STARTED THE YEAR STUDYING MAP SKILLS IN ORDER TO PREPARE YOURSELF FOR YOUR STUDY OF  WORLD HISTORY.   YOU NEEDED TO LEARN GEOGRAPHIC TOOLS AND CONCEPTS BEFORE YOU EXPLORE THE WORLD.  YOU NEEDED TO BECOME A “MAP MASTER, ”  BECAUSE LEARNING ABOUT A COUNTRY OR AREA STARTS WITH FINDING IT ON A MAP.  USING MAPS, THOUGH, IS MORE THAN JUST FINDING PLACES.   MAPS CAN TEACH YOU MANY THINGS ABOUT A REGION, SUCH AS ITS CLIMATE, ITS VEGETATION, AND THE LANGUAGES THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE SPEAK.  THEREFORE, YOU SPENT THE FIRST FEW WEEKS OF THIS SCHOOL YEAR,  LIKE ALL OF FLP SOCIAL STUDIES CLASSES K-12,  BUILDING GEOGRAPHIC LITERACY, LEARNING MAP SKILLS.  YOU SHOULD NOW BE BETTER ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE YOUR PROFICIENCY IN IDENTIFYING AND USING MAPS TO STUDY WORLD HISTORY. WE ARE NOW WORKING IN OUR WORLD HISTORY TEXT WHILE FINISHING UP OUR PREVIEW MAP WORK.   BEGINNING THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 2ND, THE CLASS WAS DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS.   YOU ARE  A HISTORIAN, AN ARCHAEOLOGIST, OR A GEOGRAPHER.  YOU DO ONLY THE HOMEWORK, PROJECTS, AND CLASS ASSIGNMENTS FOR YOUR GROUP.  THE STUDENTS ASSIGNED TO EACH GROUP ARE LISTED ON THE HOMEWORK WEBSITE EACH DAY IN CASE YOU FORGET THE GROUP.

WE BEGAN OUR STUDIES IN THE TEXTBOOK BY UNCOVERING THE PAST, CHAPTER 1.   OUR ESSENTIAL QUESTION IS:  WHY DO SCHOLARS STUDY PEOPLE, EVENTS, AND IDEAS OF LONG AGO?   WE COVERED SECTION 1, STUDYING HISTORY AND  SECTION 2, STUDYING GEOGRAPHY.  THEN, OVER THE BREAK , WE WRAPPED UP CHAPTER 1 WITH THE QUESTION SECTION AT THE END OF THE CHAPTER.

WE REVIEWED OUR BREAK HOMEWORK AND PREPARED FOR THE QUIZ ON CHAPTER 1.   WE THEN MOVED TO CHAPTER 2, THE STONE AGES AND EARLY CULTURES.  OUR ESSENTIAL QUESTION FOR THIS CHAPTER WAS:  HOW DID HUMANS’ WAYS OF LIVING  CHANGE AS THEY INTERACTED AND ADAPTED?

WE COMPLETED CHAPTER 2, SECTION 1, THE FIRST PEOPLE.  WE READ IT, DEFINED THE KEY TERMS,  ANSWERED THE READING CHECK AND THE SECTION QUESTIONS.  WE WENT BACK AND LOOKED AT THE SECTION MORE CAREFULLY AND THEN WENT ON TO SECTION 2.

WE HAVE CONNECTED OUR BEGINNING OF THE YEAR MAP SKILLS TO OUR TEXTBOOK CHAPTERS ON EARLY MAN.  WE HAD SEVERAL MAPS FOR CLASSWORK AND HOMEWORK.  STUDENTS WERE ABLE TO DEMONSTRATE WHAT THEY LEARNED ABOUT MAPPING AND ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT MAPPING IN COMPLETE SENTENCES.

WE FINISHED CHAPTER 2, SECTIONS 2 AND 3, EARLY HUMAN MIGRATION AND THE BEGINNINGS OF AGRICULTURE.  THE FIRST MARKING PERIOD EXAM WILL COVER CHAPTERS 1 AND 2 IN THE TEXTBOOK AND OUR RECENTLY ACQUIRED MAP SKILLS.

WE COMPLETED END OF THE CHAPTER EXERCISES AND OUR STUDY GUIDE AND TOOK OUR FIRST MARKING PERIOD EXAM WITH THE GOAL:  STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO PASS THE EXAM WITH A MINIMUM GRADE OF 75%.

WE BEGAN THE SECOND MARKING PERIOD WITH CHAPTER 3 IN OUR TEXTBOOK.

WE LOOKED AT CHAPTER 3, MESOPOTAMIA AND THE FERTILE CRESCENT WITH THE ESSENTIAL QUESTION:  HOW DID GEOGRAPHY INFLUENCE THE DEVELOPMENT OF CIVILIZATION IN SOUTHWEST ASIA?

WE COMPLETED SECTION 1 OF CHAPTER 3 AND HAVE STUDIED  SUMER IN SECTIONS 2 AND 3 OF THE CHAPTER.  WE  FINISHED OUR VISIT TO THE FERTILE CRESCENT WITH SECTION 4.

WE FINISHED UP WITH SECTION 4, CHAPTER 3 AND THE PHOENICIANS  WITH AN EYE ON A CHAPTER 3 TEST .

CHAPTER 3 IS NOW BEHIND US,  AND WE BEGIN CHAPTER 4 WITH THE ESSENTIAL QUESTION:  HOW WAS THE SUCCESS OF THE EGYPTIAN CIVILIZATION TIED TO THE NILE RIVER?   WE START WITH CHAPTER 4, SECTION 1, GEOGRAPHY AND ANCIENT EGYPT.  THE BIG IDEA  OF THIS SECTION IS THE WATER, FERTILE SOILS, AND PROTECTED SETTING OF THE NILE VALLEY ALLOWED A GREAT CIVILIZATION TO ARISE IN EGYPT AROUND  32OO BC.  THEN, WE MOVED INTO SECTION 2 WHERE WE LEARNED HOW EGYPTIAN GOVERNMENT AND RELIGION WERE CLOSELY CONNECTED DURING THE OLD KINGDOM.

IN SECTION 3, THE STUDIES OF THE MIDDLE AND NEW KINGDOMS SHOWED US THAT ORDER AND GREATNESS WERE RESTORED IN EGYPT DURING THESES TIMES. IN SECTION 4, EGYPTIAN ACHIEVEMENTS, WE LEARN WHY THE EGYPTIANS MADE LASTING ACHIEVEMENTS IN WRITING, ARCHITECTURE AND ART.

WE CLOSED OUT CHAPTER 4 WITH THE STUDY OF ANCIENT KUSH.  WE ASKED AND ANSWERED THE QUESTION ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EGYPT AND KUSH.  WE NOW BEGIN UNIT 3, CHAPTER 5, CIVILIZATION IN INDIA AND CHINA.  THE BIG IDEA IS THAT INDIAN CIVILIZATION FIRST DEVELOPED ON THE INDUS RIVER.

WE TAKE A BREAK FROM INDIA  TO STEP BACK TO THE 2ND MARKING PERIOD EXAM ON MESOPOTAMIA AND EGYPT.  STUDY GUIDES FIRST, AND, THEN,  EXAM ON MONDAY.

 

REMEMBER – EVERY ASSIGNMENT NEEDS A COMPLETE HEADING WITH YOUR GROUP NAME, AND ALL ANSWERS MUST BE IN COMPLETE SENTENCES WHERE APPROPRIATE.  THIS INCLUDES ALL WORKSHEETS.
