Tuesday 28th october 2014

  Hello everybody!!

 Today, at the begining of the lesson Paqui has given to the people who has repeated their projects, she has given their marks, only a group has failed and this group is going to have a part of Renaissance art in their exams.

 After that, we have reviewed the part of demography, economy and society in which we have learned that population decreased due to bad harvests, wars, migration to the Indies and the expulsion of the Moorish. Due to this, an economic recesion started, but also for negative political decisions, inefficient farming tecniques and competition for cheaper and better quality products. About society we have learned that as nobility was the main social model, people started to think that manual  work  was considered shameful and dishonest.

 The conclussion about that, is that people wanted to live without working and Paqui has told us that this continues to happens nowadays and she give us the example of Belén Esteban.

After this she has asked us to  raise our hands if : If we were rich , would we  continue working? Only five of us have raised their hands.

  She has told us also that when a new king arrived to the peninsula from Napples, Charles III, he had to issue a law  saying that manual work is not dishonest, but even whith this law, people continued to think that it was.

  Later we have started with the point c, about culture and art in the 17th century .We have copied as a chronologic scheme about the Middle Ages and the Modern Era, it is about the secularization process (the progressive liberation of knowledge from religion):
 In the Middle Ages religion stopped the progress of science and thinking ,then on the 15th and 16th centuries, during the Humanism, human beings became center of interest and scholars tried to separate thinking from religion and the Protestant Reformation started. After that ,in the 17th century the Scientific Revolution started and about this we have to define two concepts: Empiricism and rationalism .
We have also learned that the 17th century was the golden age for literature
We have also decided the date for the exam that will be next friday .
We have added some new words in the glossary :
Survey- encuesta
The swidler- El buscón
Rogue- pícaro
Schdar- sabio, erudito 
And that was all we have done today .

Hi Amalia!
You've written a very complete journal, including a lot of information. But there are two mistakes: "wich" and "exaple", the correct words are which and example. But in general is a very good journal and also funny because of the part that you speak about Belén Esteban.
Bye!

Hello,Amali

Today we have watched the video you included about the 17th century in England. Thanks for including it, alyhough it was about England.

These are my corrections:

- You have to write the commas without leaving any space after the word. The space comes after the comma. For example: demography, economy...

- Word order in this sentence: has given their marks to the people who have repeated their projects,only a group has failed and this group is going to have a part of Renaissance art in their exams.

- Capital letters: Indies, Moorish

- ineficient with two "f"

- About society we have learnt that as nobility was the main social model

- ...and she has given us the example of Belén Esteban

-...If we were rich , would we continue working?

- but even whith this law, people continued to think that it was.

The king was Charles III and he had been the king of Naples for 20 years when he became king of Spain and was very shocked when he arrived here and knew how people thought about manual work. We´ll study this in the next unit.

- In the Middle Ages religion stopped the progress of science and thinking, then in the 15th and 16th
centuries

- Protestant Reformation and SCientific REvolution in capital letters

- We have also learned that the 17th century was the Golden Age for literature

Your journal is very complete, but I think you could include the new words you've added for the glossary. Good work!
