In our history class, with our teacher Lenny Ambrosini, were studying Nazi Germany, and we visited a Museum: ‘Museo del Holocausto». In this Museum we watched a document in which a survivor retells his experience in a concentration Camp. After watching the document we were given a tour by a Lady who taught us diferentes facts about what the jewish were forbidden to do and how they were treated during Hitler’s dictatorship. Here are some pictures:
I was unfortunatly ill when we had a Talk with a history teacher about his trips to concentration camps.
In History, our teacher Lenny, left us an assignment in her blog. We had to watch a video and then answer some questions.
1- The vídeo open showing images and short vídeos of Poland, and starts to talk about the League, it said that the League had been struggling for the past years and the 1930’s was when it collapsed, and this had to do with Poland because the first cause that made the League weak was the Manchurian crisis, in Poland.
2- the problema that Japan was facing were: the population was booming with more than 1 million mouths to eat every year. It had NO natural resources of its own to exploit. Unemoloyment was very high and agricultura was in a hard position.
3- The army was highly important more than política and comoulsary military service was a t a very young age, their whole educación was based on military service.
4- The army leaders thought Japan needed to expand. They had already taken Korea and they wanted Manchuria.
5- Manchuria was rich in resources that Japan despereatly needed, because of its issue with resources.
6- At Mudken Japan’s workers exploaded a mountain which led to a huge accidente.
7- China apelled to the League and the League consultes to the japanesse embassador who said that his army would withdraw.
8- But the army actually atacked and soon had control over tje whole province of Manchuria.
In the last part of the year, with our teacher Lenny, in History, we are working on The League of Nations. In an activity i did withInes Galmariniand Martu Ibarbia, we had to create a thing link with the aims and membership of the league. And our classmates created other thinglinks with different topics of the League of Nations.
Aims and Membership (Ines Galmarini, Martu Ibarbia, Flor Claps) This thinglink explains the aims that the League of Nations proposed to themselves to achieve and also the membership, and the conflicts they had with it.
Structure of the League: (Vignesh Manwani, Gonzalo Criniti, Santiago Blasco & Benjamin Mayol) This thinglink explains how the League worked and functioned.
Achievements: (Juana P. Muñiz, Jerónimo Leguizamón, María Roggero and Federika Marty) This thinglink shows the Leagues achievements which they managed to solve with no problems, exept foundings.
Disarmament: (Sybilla Correa, Rosario Segura and Milaggros Mendez) This shows how the League tried but failed on making countries disarm.
Vilna & The Genova Protocol: (Silvestre Braun, Lucas Campión & Lola Argento) This thinglink shows how the League tried to solve one conflict and how she tried to creat the Genova Protocol.
Corfu & Bulgaria: (Victoria Landolfo, Milagros Montanelli, Margarita Muller & Rosario Vago) This conflict shows 1 failure and 1 succes.
Upper Silesia & Aland Islands: (Martin Anania, Ignacio Maestro, Francisco Lusso) This thinglink explains the dispute between Germany and Poland over Upper Silesia and the dispute between Finland and Sweden to get the Aaland Islands.
Our History teacher, Lenny, gave us some work to do on the blog. If you want to see the asignment you can click here. The asignment was on The Paris Peace Conference and The Treaty of Versallies.
This was the video we had to analyse and then asnwer the questions below:
War guilt.Explain the arguments FOR and AGAINST this term.
AGAINST: Germany caused evertything, she is to blame when it comes to war. the war started because of her. She was in almost all short and long term causes involved.
FOR: It is true that Germany caused a lot of trouble in war. But she was not the one who started it. For example Austria-Hungary was the first one to declare war (to Serbia).
Which term followed War Guilt? How much would it be today? What consequences/impact did it have on Germany?
The term that followed War Guilt, was Reparations. Now the reaprations are 400.000 millions. Germany was super impacted, because as the US was with the triple entente they had a lot of suport economically speaking and Germnay had to spend a lot of money with supplies to use in war. And also Germany, as she was the loser, had to pay a lot of money to the allies (the triple Entente).
Why were the victors planning to prevent a future war with Germany in the Treaty?
The treaty was signed to prevent another invasion with Germany because they knew that if Germany had won she would had taken away everything that the allies took away from her during war and maybe more.
What territorial losses did Germany have to face? What happened to the German colonies? What did Wilson dislike about this?
Germany had to face the losses of: Poland, Alsace-Lorraine and her colonies and Wilson disliked the distribution of the territory of Germany.
Which new nations were created after WW1?
The new nations formed before ww1 were Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia and Slovenia. And also there were some new nations after the Russian fell.
This is the voicethread that i did with Silvestre and Ines.
This are some Questions that our history teacher asked us to answer:
Did you feel you learnt more than if you had studied this from the book?
Yes, because as we had to create first the dialogue, then check the mistakes in the drive and finally record it in VoiceThread, we read it and said it to many times, the times necesary to learn them perfectly.
What did you personally enjoy about the project?
What I enjoyed about the project is that it was different, we did had fun, and it was easy to learn the content in it.
What would you change from this project if the class from Senior 1 next year were going to do it again?
I might have changed the groups, because it would be more confortable to work with someone you get very good along. But is also a bit difficult because we have to, also, learn how to work with other people and not always the same ones.
