My US and World History classes have started World War II.  They've been introduced to Hitler's rise to power, from economic to political factors that would help him up the ladder to Chancellor of Germany!  At the same time the US classes will learn what life is like in Dos Palos during the war and the precautions that were taken living on the west coast. There so much to cover, so much to share,   Operation Fu-Go, how Monopoly came to the rescue, the most decorated soldier.  Stay tune!!

US History is caught in a Black Blizzard!!  Today my US History classes started viewing the History Channel's Black Blizzard's.  Black Blizzard brings to life the Dust Bowl that decimated the American Great Plains in the 1930's. We match modern science with special effects wizardry to reinvent the experience of living through blinding blizzards of dust, and we meet the survivors who refused to leave their land and lived to tell the tale. We also investigate the controversial history of the Great Plains - an area in the middle of the country, stretching from North Dakota to Texas - and reveal the reasons why the black blizzards ravaged the land. World History is learning about the devious RASPUTIN! Gregory Rasputin the self-proclaimed holy man who tried to control the Romanov family will come to a gruesome end!!! AP US History Freedom's Boundaries, at Home and Abroad.  Students are learning about Plessy v Ferguson, Brown v Board of Education and the Elimination of Black Voting in the 1890 South.  Test on FRIDAY!!
