EXAMS

1. Do some work! Last year the accelerate classes got a "rev up" from the Rector because of low marks. Don't let it happen to you!

2. Devise a revision programme. Plan your sports, job and other IMPORTANT activities. Cut down on the phone and tv. Once the plan is devised - STICK TO IT!

NEXT UNIT

We will be studying the Cold War. Our major assessment will be a seminar you present on one aspect of the Cold War. Your seminar will require you to present five main ideas, a visual and a learning activity that illustrates one of the main ideas.

So...start doing some reading and thinking to make your choice. A full list will be presented in class but here are some possibilities:
Hungary 1956
Star Wars
MAD
Bikini
Sputnik
Cuban Missile Crisis
Development of A and H bomb
Korea
Detente
Czechoslovakia 1968
McCarthy
Rosenbergs
Berlin Blockade
NATO and the Warsaw Pact

and so on. A full list will be presented in class. You will work in pairs.

The seminars will be presented in chronological order so we build up an overview of the period 1945-1990.

I will be concentrating on the Iron Curtain / Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War.
