July Session - History Recovery

Summer School July Session History Recovery begins July 7. Class will meet Monday through Friday, 8:30-1:00 (includes bathroom and lunch break).

Most of the information regarding course requirements, projects, etc. can be found on the wikispace page under "U.S. History Recovery." World History Recovery information can be found here as well.
http://georgeclasses.wikispaces.com/U.S.+History+Recovery

You will post Unit/Theme choices, beginning and ending dates, questions and comments here. (This is required. After you complete each Unit/Theme, I will post a comment verifying completion of your project. Parents/guardians/Guidance, etc. will be able to track your progress by checking the comments section of this blog post.)

Before you post comments, you must register with Blogger. On the first day of class we will do this. Everyone must do this. If you do not have an email address, we will set one up for you. Once you register, DO NOT forget your user name or password! Your user name is your email address. You cannot retrieve forgotten passwords from school computers. Finally, when you are asked to type your display name, DO NOT type in your first and last name. Type your last name and the letters "U.S." or "W" for U.S. History Recovery or World History Recovery.

For most of you, the majority of your work will be done online either on the blog or class wikispace page. For searches, I've included a wikipedia search tool at the bottom of the page. I'd like all of you to view the video embedded below so you will develop a better understanding of wikipedia.

copus and drake - Do you need ideas with regard to what projects you would like to do on Pearl Harbor, The Holocaust, etc.?

Chris read a good book in the June session about the Holocaust. Maybe one of you would like to read it? The book is in the classroom on the long table...it's called Maus.

There are many online exhibits and other resources on the United States Holocaust Memorial site. I suggest you two check it out.

hi

tylermi w said...

alright I've been thinking on some topics involving world history and then decided on topics such as

The Korean War
maybe the history between Mongolia and China something dealing with the great wall or events leading up to its creating.
i'm a little short on ideas when it comes to world history everything i would like to do seems to deal more with us history. im gonna keep looking and maybe have more ideas or maybe more specific ideas tommorow.

alright as stated yesterday i would like to do something involving the Korean war or as some call it the Korean "conflict"


also i am having difficulty finding some topics involving world history rather than just U.S. History. Most blog posts and activities involve U.S. and not anything national. Have any ideas? i'de like to hear them. also i had posted quiet a bit of information on an older "images in action" i believe its called.

The Holocaust was the worst Jewish massacre in the history of wars. Holocaust is Greek for "Completely Burnt."
Millions died in the concentration camps and afterwards the Nazis were defeated and most of the Jews were sent out of the concentration camps. Over 3.8 million people died in all of the concentration camps put together.
The only thing that tells about the Holocaust is the diary of a little girl named Anne Frank.

Copus US said...

It was the worst wars in history.

I would like to go deeper into the chemicals that they tested the Jews on and the whole thing on the burning of the Jews mainly the torture areas like the gas chambers and the showers.

Copus US said...

I would also like to study up on the weapons that jthe Nazis used on the jews.

Copus US said...

I want to learn alot from the Nazis like their political views and lifestyles

Copus US said...

copus - Have you checked out the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum? Flikr and Google Images should also have some photographs you could use.
