Twentieth Century Test Preparation

Dear 11A,

 

Here’s what you have to do for the test on THURSDAY APRIL 28, 2016

 

Similarly as we did in class, you are going to be assigned a topic (events or facts) from the article about 20th century and you will have to:

 

  1. Tell the immediate effects the event or fact had in history.
  2. Explain the effects the event or fact had in late 20th century and early 21st
  3. Discuss other issues (a least one), which can be told about the event or fact.

 

YOUR PARTICIPATION IN THE BLOG GRANTS YOU 20 POINTS OF THE TEST GRADE.

 

Obviously, you have to research to enrich your topic, but you have to be brief; no more than 250 words. COPYING AND PASTING IS PENALIZED; YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY LOSE YOUR TWENTY POINTS.

 

Remember! You benefit others and get benefitted by others. If you miss this assignment, you don’t only lose your 20 points, you might make someone else fail.

How Much Land Does a Man Need?

In order to study for the test, you will need to look up the meaning of all the unknown words you find. You will be allowed to use your glossary in the test, but on the conditions that it is handwritten and is not copied from anyone’s. I will check each of them and if there is one exactly like anyone else’s, she won’t be allowed to use it.

Here’s also the complete text of the story for you to read it.
