Look at the political cartoon below. You can click to enlarge it. First student to explain this joke about an older form of imperialism will receive 50 Extra Credit !!
Today, right after the warm up, individuals and partners will present their work on their Imperialism project. A sign up sheet will be on the board for those who are going to present. If you do not present your work that will immediately drop your grade 50%. The rubric guide below is a good way to understand how you will be graded. While individuals and partners present we will all be taking Cornell notes on their work addressing the following areas: Who, What, When, Where, Why and Historical Significance.
