Tuesday, 26th January 2016

Hi, it's Andrei. Let's try to review what we have done today in class of Social Sciences!

At the beginning of the lesson ,  we have had a look at the projects of 2nd of eso. Paqui was very happy because most  of the projects are very well done! These projects are about the Middle Ages. Juan Diego's project is one of the best. 

Later, we've revised the Revolution of 1830. Here you have a chart to check it.

Then, Paqui has explained us the  1848 Revolution . This revolution  is also called "The springtime of the people" It started in France and extended throughout almost all Europe:


  • In Central and Eastern Europe. They fought for the elimination of absolutism and serfdom.
  • In Western Europe. They fought for democratization of the liberal regimes.                                                            
                  Source:http://www.age-of-the-sage.org/history/1848/revolution_of_1848.html 
  • In France the revolution was inspired on democratic liberalism. This revolution was driven by nationalists and republicans. People dethroned Louis Philip I and the 2nd Republic was proclaimed.
  • In Austrian Empire, Poland, Italian and German States, Danmark...  It  had some consequences, These consequences were the establishment of conservative liberal regimes in Piedmont-Sardinia and Prussia and the Emperor's abdication and Metternich's resignation in Austria. 
  • The nationalist revolutions in the Austrian Empire and the German Confederation failed.

                                                                Barricade on the rue Soufflot 
As a consequence of these revolutionary waves Congress of Vienna system disappeared. These changes were:

--- Consolidation of the liberal regimes and beginning of a slow democratization.

--- Prussia and Piedmont-Sardinia became stronger and led the unification processes of Germany and Italy.

Only in the  Russian and Ottoman Empire situation continued to be immovable.

At the end of the lesson Paqui has explained us about José Mujica. He was the president of Uruguay for 8 years. He was a normal person who didn't change his way of life when he became president. José didn't want to live in the palace, so he went to Montevideo every day. He received a salary and was criticized by people.

Hi !! Your journal is very good Andrei, good job !! I completely agree with you Manal, it's an example of humility and it shows that you can be an important person without living in a palace. I've seen the video and I've found it really interesting!!

Hello,

You should read the interview, because it tells about how hard his life was and what he learned from being in prison. It's really impressing and an example worth being followed.

See you!

Hello Andrei,

There are few mistakes to correct:

Then, Paqui has explained us the 1848 Revolution.

• In Central and Eastern Europe. They fought for the elimination of absolutism and serfdom.
• In Western Europe. They fought for democratization of the liberal regimes.

As a consequence of these revolutionary waves, the Congress of Vienna systemdisappeared.
At the end of the lesson Paqui has explained us about José Mujica. He was the president of Uruguay for 8 years. He was a normal person who didn't change his way of life when he became president. José didn't want to live in the palace, so he went to Montevideo every day.

I don't understand your last sentence: "He received a salary and was criticized by people".

I said that he received his salary as president and used it to create a school next to his house. Some people criticized him because he didn't live in the presidential palace, but I think most of you agreed on the fact that you can stay in your house andbe the president at the same time.

That's all. See you!

He received a salary as president and people criticized him because he didn't want to change his house. Do you understand me ?

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

Yes, I understand. But he was criticized because he didn't leave his house, not because he received a salary.
