Today Paqui has tries to turn on the whiteboard but she hasn’t done it didn’t operate. So today Paqui has done the lesson without the power point.
At the first of the lessons we have correct the exercises that Paqui ordered yesterday. A classmate has come to the blackboard to correct it. The first exercise said: “Explain what the Ancien Régime estate-based society was like and draw a pyramid representing its situation”. So he has drawn it and Paqui has corrected and she has added more information.
NOBLES and CLERGY
Then other classmate has corrected the exercise 3 (Pag 11 of the book). The question said: “Why did the population increase in the 18th century? How did this population increase affect the economic activities?” The answer is: The population grew considerably because there were less wars, less big epidemics, new crops were introduced (corn and potato) and mortality decreased. This occur after the War of Spanish Succession and the Treaty of Utrecht. This population increased led to a bigger demand for all type of products. Prices increased, economy activities develop, monarchies protected trade companies, trade increased…
