HAND IN your homework from last night (either in the DropBox or, if on paper, in the basket) and pick up one of the slips of paper available that deals with one of the three key ideas from the first section of the homework: Conservatism (388-389), Liberalism (390), and Nationalism (390). Take a few minutes to re-read your section from the textbook. Feel free to take notes on the slip of paper if you like. 

Group 1: When everyone's had a chance to learn a little bit about their topics, you'll be getting into a group with others who have read the same section to discuss what you've learned. Try to get a real sense of understanding of your term, because you'll be leaving this group in just a few minutes to work with others who haven't spent much time with your topic. You'll need to understand it well enough to explain it to others. 

Group 2: Now it's time to shuffle up the groups. You need to form a group of three, finding people from each of the other two groups to form a group that represents each of the three ideas of Conservatism, Liberalism, and Nationalism. Using your previous reading and discussions, and your notes, you need to work with your group to complete a Google Document Template, a Chart called "Three Ideas". Read and follow the directions there to correctly sort the statements into their proper locations. (NOTE: You may want to open one copy of the template then share it with your group members). When finished, submit ONE copy from your group -- with everyone's name on it -- to the class DropBox

HOMEWORK: Google Docs Template called "Chapter 12.3. Terms and Questions"
