You had homework last night -- to read and answer questions from Chapter 13, Section 3. Please turn it in to the DropBox before moving on to today's assignment.

Next, you’ll need to use the textbook  to complete an assignment titled Ch 13.3 Stengths & Weaknesss, which you should be able to find in the Google Templates. You should be able to complete the assignment by the end of the period and turn it in to the class dropbox online.

If you finish with time to spare you may continue working on your Google Maps that we’ve been working on for the last few days.* If your first 13 locations in Europe are all located and described, you can start adding a few more, but these are all outside of Europe. Locate and add markers for the following places on your map. You won't be reading about them until tomorrow night's assignment (Ch 14.1 & 2), but you can certainly update your map to get ahead of the readings. (Note: Some of these locations are countries, not cities, but you can locate your map marker anywhere inside the country. Today's capital city in those nations would be a good choice)
  1. Singapore
  2. Burma
  3. Vietnam
  4. Philippines
  5. Thailand
  6. Nigeria
  7. Togo
  8. Egypt
  9. Suez Canal
  10. Algeria
  11. Tunisia
  12. Ethiopia
  13. Congo
  14. Cape Town, South Africa
*You don't have to add all these to your map now. You will have a chance later. If you're finished, tired of adding them, or just want to do them later, but there's still time left in class, you may start on tonight's homework assignment below.

HOMEWORK for tonight is to read the section titled: Extreme Nationalism (pp 442-443) and answer the following questions :
