Will you assign due dates to these different unit topics/assignments? If so, how is this going to turned in? Another thing, will you assign tests and/or quizzes? (Hopefully, this is not too much questions. Sorry)
What if you pace yourself and learn at your own speed? As far as tests and essays, I think I will try to facilitate dialogue via these blog post threads and, just maybe, more people will join in. If not, the poor AP students under the AP tab are learning everyday, nothing says you couldn't head over there to see what we are up to! Stay well!
For the world war one do you want us to take any notes on the slideshow ? Also do you want us to do any questions that come along with the slideshow?
I think it would be best for all involved if we just "learn" and post are questions and comments to the various blog threads that I have created. If you want to get an idea what it looks like, jump over to the AP discussion threads on WHAP: Historical Discourse.
Will this be the basis of learning or are there going to be assignments and test that follow?
Lastly, have you received any information of the school staying with a way of online schooling rather then returning back to school?(sorry for the inconvenience)
Basically, I believe you can learn (and I can teach) without having to give you "work" and or assessments. I have created units that should take a few days to get through. I really just want us to discuss what we are learning on the discussion posts. Seemed the easiest way to do two things: learn, and record attendance. As I have stated in my emails to both students and parents/guardians, I need to see you respond via email or blog post for you to earn credit and for attendance verification. So, this works. Next week, we will be learning about how governments were affected by the Great Depression and how this leads to different government responses leading ultimately to WWII. If you want essays and tests, I can send some your way big guy. Spread the word. I would except to see much more participation starting Monday.
I love your recorded lectures. Mom likes to listen to them too, so props for that. Do you think we'll be coming back to school at all? I heard a few things about not having to make up the time we're not in school because it's on a national level, but that sounds unlikely.
Science - "no"
Nevada - "probably not"
Federal Policy - "Who knows?"
and thank you
Wait so, if we get back to school by the time they say, will we be reviewing everything from the break again?
No, I would continue teaching. Why would I spend hours each day building online lessons just to reteach? C'mon David!!!
So what I learned from this and from prior knowledge of this war this was a "local" war that was expanded globally due to treatys that made more nations join on either side of the central or allied powers. I feel like if Germany didn't break the neutrality of Belgium they would've still had a difficult time dealing with frances defenses among the French-German border, tho I feel like without Britains immediate involvement due to Belgium technology such as the tank would come later and used to less of it's already little effect. Also when the Russians were defending the Serbians why did Germany push on two offenses instead of stalemating one and peircing and jabbing at small breakpoints on the other fronts? Sorry that my comment is mostly only about the political and combat part.
Also I forgot to say that I believe that Britain would still later than sooner involve themselves in fear that cousin willy would take over western and most of eastern europe even without the breaking of neutrality of Belgium.
The goal was to defeat France quickly and then turn on Russia, but the stalemate was a unexpected result, More unexpectedly, no one could figure out how to break though. New technology was in abundance, but new military strategy ideals were not. This is probably why most military historians prefer to study the daring invasion of WWII. However, thinking of you in particular, I bet you would love the link to Dan Carlin's Hard Core History on WWI. Check it out.
Yessir I will check ot out and the push to defeat france to turn on russia seem similar to how Hitler tried to do it in WWII but the just like in WWI Britain interveined in germanys plans. But it seems like germany has always underestimated the pride and mobilization speed the russians have had for both wars.
Indeed! Overestimated how quickly a victory could be achieved. The WWII strategy was literally known as "lightening war," meaning strike quickly and decidedly. It worked for a few years...
