Today in Social Sciences we have started the class talking about the mistakes of the projects, Paqui hasn´t corrected our projects because the other class have the exam on Thursday and we have it the next week.
Then Cris has corrected the exercise sixteen that is:
16.-Explain the creation and evolution of the International Workingmen's Association.
In 1864 Marx proposed the creation of an International Workingmen's Association (IWA) in London. Marxists , anarchists and trade unionists of Europe and North America formed the First International. Their slogan was "Workers of the world, unite!". But the disagreements between Marxists and anarchists led to its dissolution in 1876.
The Second International was created only by Marxists in 1889. The workers' anthem was created and the 1st May was established as the International Worker's Day. But there were problems between those who wanted to make revolution and those who wanted to participate in elections.
After this we have started the Unit 5 that was called: Europe in the 2nd half of the 19th century.This unit has two points the 1st one that was Unifications of Italy and Germany, this point will be included in the next week's exam and the 2nd one is The Age of Empire.
We have stared with the first point and we have watched a presentation on the white board with this content:
Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte was elected the president of the 2nd republic in France in 1850.In 1852 he was elected emperor so he became Napoleon III. He had an important role in the unifications of Italy and Germany:
-He supported the italians to fight against Austria.
-He had to fight against Prussia and this contributed to the definitive unification of Germany.
Paqui has said to us that we can't understand the World War One if we don't know this information.
Because of this we have started to talk about the number of deaths in the Wolrd War One, The World War Two and some other wars that had a high number of deaths, especially above all during the Cold War.
Paqui has started to explain us the causes of the Cold War and the present situation of Europe and Russia and Ukraine.
And to finish the today's glossary words are:
Age of Empires: La era del imperialismo..
USSR: Soviet Union.
To leak: filtrar.
And this is all. Bye, see you on Thursday!
