Today in Social Science class...
Paqui has said that she has known that our assessment meeting will be on the 19th June and she also said that we have to decide on the days of the exams. We were like ten minutes, deciding the days and these are the days: the last exam will be on the 14th, the make-up exam will be on the 18th of June and the resit exam on the same day in the afternoon.
Afterwards, we have continued with the class and we have copied the outline of the new unit about the Interwar Period (1919-1939) on the notebook.
1) The USA: from the "roaring twenties" to the Great Depression
2) Fascist Italy
3) Nazi Germany
4) Spain during the interwar period:
A) Primo de Rivera's Dictatorship (1923-1931)
B) The 2nd Republic (1931-1936)
C) The Civil War (1936-1939)
Then, Paqui has explained again the Disaster of Annual to Laura Muñoz because she has had a doubt about this. Also Paqui has said that she will collect our notebooks next week.
We have started with USA: from the roaring 20s to the great depression, in the "Roaring Twenties", the people were very happy and we have seen a picture about this and there were people dancing and happy. Paqui has said that in this period there are a lot of interesting pictures.
Afterwards, we have started seeing the power point of this unit and we have seen the graphic of the World Industrial Production in 1929 and then we have copied what happened in the USA after World War 1 on the notebook:
-During WW1 the USA supplies the belligerent countries with raw materials, industrial products and weapons.
-The European countries owed a lot of money to the USA (war loans).
-Intact productive system after the war.
-Small human losses with respect to other countries.
-Owners of half of the world gold reserves.
-The dollar became the predominant currency in international trade.

At the end of the class, we have seen the percentage of houses with electric appliances. And the bell has rung. Today we have learnt some new words: to discredit (desacreditar), to disavow (desautorizar), roar (rugido), roaring (rugiente), roaring twenties ( felices años 20), to ow (deber), to own (ser propietario), creditor (acreedor), war loans (créditos de guerra) and payment by instalments (pago a plazos).
