Today in Social Sciences lesson, the first thing Paqui has done has been to review if we had the scheme about The Ancien Régime: Main features and changes in the 18th century.
After that we have corrected the scheme and highlighted some important things about it. The scheme was divided into three parts: definition, main facts and changes into the 18th century.
- DEFINITION: expression used by different French revolutioners to describe all they wanted to destroy.
- MAIN FACTS: -Absolute monarchy. -Society divided into estates: population and power. -Low production economy: subsistence agriculture and a lot of limits to the development of economic activities. -Demography: population doubled, high birth rates, high mortality rates, low natural growth.
- CHANGES INTO THE 18th CENTURY: -Less wars. -Less epidemics. -New techniques and crops. -Changes in trade.
SOCIAL GATHERING: reunión social.
TAX SYSTEM: sistema fiscal, tributario.
DESPITE: a pesar de.
TO COMPILE: recopilar.
TO TRUST: creen en, confiar.
And so on, and when we finished this she has begun to explain the definition of Enlightenment, the precedents of the 17th century, the main features and the origins of the encyclopedia.
Finally, she has gave to us for homeworks to do a scheme about the point of Enlightenment and to write the definition of Encyclopedia. It has been a very interesting lesson.
