Hello

Today in Social Sciences class Paqui has finished to explain the Jacobin Convention and she has explained that the Reign of Terror didn't start with Jacobin Convention, it started before and finished after Jacobin Convention but some books don't say the same.

After that Paqui has explained us what was the Directory (1795-1799) was

The Directory was a new government established by the Constitution which was written in 1795 (Constitution of the year III), which established a new conservative regime:
   -   Executive power: government of 5 members (Directory).
   -   Legislative power: two chambers, Council of the Five Hundred and Council of the Elders.
   -   Universal suffrage.

Problems:

 - Attacks from the absolutists (failed coups d'État).
 - Popular protests and Jacobin conspiracies.
 - War against the European monarchies.
 - Serious economic crisis (inflation).
 - Corruption (Barras) and loss of prestige of the Directory

Members of the first Directory

Hi Antonio! You have forgotten the glossary. I think that you can do better, because Paqui has explained more things. It's very short.

Bye!!

Hello,

As Andrei has said, you have to make a bigger effort. The sources have to be below every picture.

These are my corrections:

Today in Social Sciences class Paqui has finished to explain the Jacobin Convention and she has explained that the Reign of Terror didn't start with Jacobin convention, it started before and finished after Jacobin Convention but (in) some books don't say the same.

After that Paqui has explained us what (was) the Directory (1795-1799) was

- War against the European monarchies.
- Serious economic crisis (inflation).
- Corruption (Barras) and loss of prestige of the Directory

And you should end in a different way, for example with the homework I gave you.

Bye.

As usual, you didn't correct your work.
