Today we'll pick up where we left off last Friday:

We'll complete our look at the five regions of Africa. Use your handout of African regions to collect information from other groups. When finished, you should have a good resource for looking at the different regions of Africa and how they were treated by the European nations who decided to create colonies there.

HOMEWORK: Read Chapter 14-3: British Rule in India (466-471) before class on Monday. Create an outline of key ideas from the reading, using the section headings (in RED) and sub-headings (in BLACK) for your outline sections. Include notes that YOU think are most important, in either outline, list, or sentence form. For example:
I) The Sepoy Mutiny
    A) Events leading to revolt
    B) Effects of the Revolt
II) British Colonial Rule....and so on....
