Friday, 4th of October

Hello people!
Today we have started the lesson remembering the things that Paqui said in the last lesson like the Triangular Trade and the Thirty Years War. After, Paqui has explained that Louis XIII had a hunting pavilion in Paris, but Louis XIV transformed it into a palace, the palace of Versalles and we have seen an interactive map of this beautiful and strange palace.

                       The palace of Versalles                                          

After this explanation Paqui has said that the last point of Politic of this unit is the 'English Revolution' and we have seen a presentation of this part of the history. In 1648 Charles I tried to rule as an absolute Monarch without the control of the Parliament. He was decapited and the Republic was proclaimed. And he took the control of England. After his death, the Monarchy was reestablished in 1660 when Habeas Corpus were established.

Later Paqui has sought in Wordreference the meaning of 'Verdugo' that is executioner. After that we have seen the latin expression HABEAS CORPUS 'Tengas cuerpo' I have said before, which means that when a person was arrested they had to know why he, she has been arrested. This means the end of arbitrary arrests. Paqui has explained us what that it means with an example.

King John signs the Magna Carta
The Habeas Corpus

In this period the king was James II but he only reigned for 3 years. In 1689 William of Orange had to swear the Bill of Rights that limited the king's power. England was the first country to have a limited monarch. After this explanation Paqui has written some questions on the blackboard a series of questions of the 'English Revolution' to answer and understand better the lesson, Paqui has waited five minutes and we have checked them. At the end of the class Paqui has said that James can be four different spanish names. (Jaime, Jacobo, Diego and Santiago, like our classmate)

During the lesson we have added some new words on the glossary like: 
·Hunting pavilion- pabellón de caza
·To behead- decapitar
·Executioner- verdugo
·James II- Jacobo II
·Dutch- holandés
·To flee- huir
·To host- alojar
·Bill of Rights- Declaración de derechos

These are the things that we have done in this lesson, see you soon!

Hello classmates,
A good journal Luis. I would like to correct some mistakes that I found.

- In the third paragraph at the end of the first line, you have put "Afterthat" instead "After that".
- You can also put the sources of the images, it would be better.

And nothing else Luis! Congratulations. See you on Monday.

Hello Luis! You have forgotten that Oliver Cromwell ruled England between 1649 and 1660,when the Republic was proclaimed. He was declared Protector Lord and he acted as a dictator.
Only this detail! I like the photo of the Palace of Versalles.
Good Work! See you on Monday classmates. Happy weekend.

Hi Luis,that's a good journal. The orthographic mistakes are not very important but you can also add that we have done a chart with some questions. See you

Hello classmates! Hello Luis!
Your journal are very good and complete, good work! Only you can add the sources and the homework that is the definition of "The Bill of Rights", but your journal are perfect! See you the next day!

THese are my corrections:

- AS some students have said, you have to add the sources of the pictures (the websites from which you've extracted them), not only their captions (pie de foto.

- You've forgotten some contents: as Virginia told you, you've forgotten to include Oliver CRomwell, who ruled England as a dictator with the title of LOrd Protector from 1649 to 1660. You've also forgotten to name Charles II, the king who restored the monarchy in 1660 and accepted the Habeas Corpus. Add these figures and explain the missing information.

These are the rest of the corrections:

- Louis XIII had a hunting pavilion in Versailles, near Paris

- Politics... English revolutions

- the Monarchy was reestablished in 1660 when the new king, Charles III accepted the Habeas Corpus

-Word order: ... the meaning of 'Verdugo' on Wordreference , which is executioner

_ Names of languages in capital letters: Latin, Spanish

-... 'Tengas cuerpo' I have mentioned before

- ...why he, she had been

- Erase the part in brackets: what (that) it means with an example.

AS I have told you in class, you could also add about talking in Spanish in class. This would be a good reminder for the people who don't make an effort to express themselves in English.

That's all. See you!
