Good Morning, Scholars! I'm really looking forward to our GOOGLE MEET session today.
I CAN: DESCRIBE CHARACTERISTICS OF LIFE FOR THE ENSLAVED POPULATION OF THE SOUTH.
FOCUS QUESTION: DO YOU THINK NORTHERN STATES COULD HAVE DONE MORE TO STOP THE GROWTH OF SLAVERY IN THE SOUTH DURING THE EARLY AND MID 1800s?
We have had many great discussions this week about the life in the South in the early to mid 1800s. We have examined the economy, transportation, communication as well as other components of life in the South.
Today we will discuss the hardships and brutal treatment of the enslaved population of the South during the 1800s. We will look at the role family life, cultural traditions and religion played in the lives of slaves in the South. We will also discuss how the evil institution of slavery would lead to Civil War between the North and South. The divided nation would soon face a long and difficult road in the coming years.
EXIT QUESTION: DO YOU THINK THE LIVING RELATIVES (2020) OF FORMER SLAVES (FROM THE 1700S AND 1800S) SHOULD BE PAID REPARATIONS (PAYMENTS) BY THE GOVERNMENT TO MAKE UP FOR THE PAIN AND SUFFERING THAT WAS ENDURED DURING THAT TIME PERIOD?
I LOOK FORWARD TO DISCUSSING ALL OF THESE ISSUES WITH YOU TODAY! MR. BRUNING
All Social Studies Classes will Participate in a Google Meet:
Topic: Cold War

Truman administration wasted no time creating an atmosphere of crisis and the Cold War.
• Established a climate of fear
• A hysteria about Communism
Enter McCarthyism: His accusations sparked an anti-Communist hysteria and national search for “subversives” that caused suspicion and fear across the U.S. Merely being accused by McCarthy caused people to lose their jobs and reputations.
Distraction similar to Post 9/11. Kept Pressing Domestic Issues in Limbo. Keeping the country secure and safe from Communism was the MAIN FOCUS. In the Meantime:
Minimal Advancements for:
