Hello people !
Today, when we have arrived to the class of social sciences, Paqui has written a scheme in the blackboard about how the modern states birth, and it includes the main features, the reaction to absolutims and the stages, that there were two: Authoritarian Monarchies (15th-16th centuries) and Absolute Monarchy (17th century), and we have copied it in our notebooks.
Later we have checked our homework, they were about the reforms made by the catholic monarchs to reinforce their authority and the absolute monarchy. Some people have read their summaries and Paqui has checked them and also she has asked us some things about the summaries.
After this, Paqui has added some information to our summaries about the Absolute Monarchy. She has explained that Aragon and Castile were independent kingdoms, Isabel goberned in Castile and Fernando in Aragon, but sometimes he helped Isabel to gobern Castile because it was big and it needed more control.
Also in the class of today we have learned some new words: Holy Brotherhood (Santa Hermandad), to watch (vigilar), to hire (contratar), to advice (aconsejar), currency (moneda) and by drawing lots (por sorteo).
To finish the class Paqui has said that for homework we have to read a sheet that she has given us the first day about the Modern Era and we have to make a scheme about the Age of discovery.
¡ BYE BYE !
