testing on Unit 2 Reformation. Homework is to complete the foldable maps by next Tues the 14th.

Students will take notes on the explorers using the ppt and the student notes worksheet. Most importantly their test grade will be on a mind map of the explorers. Information and samples will be given on Tuesday. Students may begin this process right away- in class- or they may recap each night using the student notes worksheet. Either way the final mind map is due on Friday Oct 16th and if students wait until that one mere class time to begin and end their mind map they will find themselves severely short of the needed time to create a high quality finished product.
NOTE- due to popular request: Early Bird option is offered on the mind map - if you turn it in by end of class on Thur you will get 10 extra points!
The Mind Map explanation and directions:

What Each Student Should Know
The student will demonstrate knowledge of the worldwide impact of World War I by

b) explaining the outcomes and global effect of the war and the Treaty of Versailles.

World War I
How The Story Goes
World War I (1914-1918) was caused by competition among industrial nations in Europe and a failure of diplomacy. The war transformed European and American life, wrecked the economies of Europe, and planted the seeds for a second world war.

What You Should Ask (and eventually answer)
What were the factors that produced World War I?

What were the major events of the war?

Who were the major leaders?

What were the outcomes and global effects of World War I?

What were the terms of the Treaty of Versailles?

Causes of World War I
Alliances that divided Europe into competing camps
Nationalistic feelings
Diplomatic failures
Competition over colonies

Major events

United States enters war
Russia leaves the war

Major leaders
Woodrow Wilson
Kaiser Wilhelm II

Outcomes and global effects
Colonies’ participation in the war, which increased demands for independence
End of the Russian Imperial, Ottoman, German, and Austro-Hungarian empires
Enormous cost of the war in lives, property, and social disruption
Treaty of Versailles- Forced Germany to accept
guilt for war and loss of territory and pay
reparations this limited the German military

Revolution in Russia
How the Story Goes
Tsarist Russia entered World War I as an absolute monarchy with sharp class divisions between the nobility and peasants. The grievances of workers and peasants were not resolved by the Tsar. Inadequate administration in World War I led to revolution and an unsuccessful provisional government. A second revolution by the Bolsheviks created the communist state that
ultimately became the U.S.S.R.
What you should ask (and be able to eventually answer)
Why did Russia erupt in revolution while fighting in World War I?

How did communism rise in Russia?

Causes of 1917 revolutions
Defeat in war with Japan in 1905
Landless peasantry
Incompetence of Tsar Nicholas II
Military defeats and high casualties in World War I

2. Analyze relationships between nationalism, religion, and imperialism.

Topics: Students are examining what seem to be disparate units of reform during the 19th century. Reform in Great Britain, U.S., France, Russia, Italy, Germany, and Austria Hungary. All work is in preparation for studying the next two units on Imperialism and World War I. Hopefully with the material contained within this unit on Reform and Revolt, students will see the foundations that inevitably led to the destruction of society and the environment as seen in World War I.
Students will work independently to turn in their project on Reform. The project is due in the beginning of class (1st 5 minutes only!) on Thursday Feb. 12th. There is an early bird credit given if the project is turned in by the end of class (and only in their class - not the end of the day) on Wednesday Feb. 11th.
The project counts as a test grade.
There will be a quiz on Thursday February 12th to assess basic knowledge of students.
