Hi guys! Tonight read from the text about Early Capitalist Societies (pp.648-655) In addition, read one of the Mercantilist Essays linked on the 1450-1750 page. Last name A - K - read essay #1; Last name L-Z read essay #2. Bring your notes/annotations tomorrow. Have a good night:)
Hi All. I thought it might be helpful to state again how you should prepare for the quiz tomorrow. The focus is 1450, so what is important for understanding historical development at this time?... the reading from the text pp. 580-591, the research you did for summer assignment - (i.e.terms, Zheng He article), NeoConfucian readings (link provided and text pp. 394-395), class discussion today (& what we will finish tomorrow) re: 1450, and a skill based text selection with questions. If you are unsure about something -post a comment/question before 8 pm tonight and I will be happy to respond. See you tomorrow.
Don't forget your geography quiz tomorrow. Any feature on the list is fair game. Freshmen, I added a regions map to the Prehistory page to help you study; be sure to check it out. AP students feel free to visit the 9th graders' materials for a link to outline maps to practice.
