7th November 2011


Today in Social Science we have done the exam of units 9 and 1, in the unit 9 we have to study: the Absolute Monarchy, the definition of Baroque, demography, society and economy, the Thirty Years' War, The English Revolutions and the Decline of the Hispanic Empire and in the unit 1 we have to study: the Ancien Régime, the changes in the 18th century, Enlightenment, Political and Economy thinking, the independence of the 13 colonies of North America and the fundations of the U.S.A. and the War of the Spanish Succession.

In the exam we have got five questions, first to put the correct name with it definition, second one, to explain the Enlightenment and two of its philosophers, the third one, to choose two of these options:
a) Explain the Ancient Regime: Main features
b) Explain The Enlightened Despotism
c) Explain the War of the Spanish Succession.

In the exercise four, we have to choose five words and define it when and where they happened, and the last exercise we have to explained the Foundation of the U.S.A.

In my opinion the exam has been a little bit long.

This is all for today.

Hello Laura,

You have to change the picture you´ve chosen. Someone used this picture on a previous post. You also have to include the source of the picture below it.

You could add what you have for homework next Wednesday.

Read you classmates´comments to correct the mistakes you´ve made.

The first mistake I have seen is: today in social scienceS. And I think that isn't necessary to write so many "to".
In my opinion, the exam has been long but if you have studied it has been easier, as always...
See you soon!

Hi Laura! I've found some more mistakes:
-we have done the exams of units 9 and 1, in unit 9 we HAD to study... WITHOUT "the" before the word "unit" and the verb in the past, because we studied it before doing it (theoretically jaja)
- In exercise four... again without "the".
-and IN the last exercise we HAD to EXPLAIN...
See you!!

What happens with today's journal???

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

I don´t know. Yolanda Abad was in charge today. I´m very tired of the general lack of interest on the blog. I wonder if this effort is worthwhile.

Laura Meco said...

Come on Paqui! Don't say that! Don't get discouraged... If you want I can write it.

Thanks for offering your help. Yolanda has sent me a message telling me she couldn´t access the blog. Now she´s writing. Let´s see what she writes. Have a good night.
