Today we will accomplish the following:
1) Finish up the discussion from yesterday (very quickly) and go over the expectations for your first assignment.
2) Develop our class' answer to the question, "What is History?"
3) Look at long term and short term causes and the fallacy of causation
4) Discuss proper note taking skills.
5) Use a teacher-centered lecture on the 4 MAIN reasons behind WWI as a good opportunity to improve our note taking skills.
6) For homework, students are asked to label the attached map, Europe on the Outbreak of World War One, indicating all the major countries, and colouring the Triple Entente one colour, the Triple Alliance another. Please include an appropriate title and legend/key.
