Today we started with the Do Now, we had to sign into popplet, then we answered questions that we wrote on our popplet. Ms.Vallillo told us to fill in a chart that said Important Date and on the other side it said What Happened. The class is sharing information about the Boxer Rebellion because the are filling a timeline hanging on the the roof.

Now we moved on to the Image Analysis, the class is looking at a image with a person from England with octopus hands holding the world. The class is filling a chart as they ask questions and wonder why the Political Cartoon has England controlling the world. The class moved on to to the second Political cartoon. There are many animals in the picture, each animal is representing countries. The Dragon from China is dead in the middle of all the other animals, holding weapons. The third image is a English man force feeding a Chinese man Opium
(a drug). Marcos and Andre think that that they are forcing Chinese to get addicted to Opium, so China buys Opium. Image four is the map of China with a bunch of colors around it. At the bottom it says the countries taking over, France, Germany, Japan, Russia and Britain controlling the most part. The class thinks that the colors mean the places controls by the foreigners
We moved on to the Close Read, the class is gisting and talking to the text. They answered questions. Ms. Vallillo gave the class a set of directions 1. Read 2. Gist 3. Use Strategies. Then we did Quiz Quiz Trade one of the most exciting things about Humanities .I want to give a shoutout to both Marcos and Andre for highlighting and gisting.
