In class on Monday,Jake will help us put the finishing touches on the class project. Please finalize your section before class on Monday (you will have one more chance after that to make changes before class on Wednesday).
Also, I would appreciate it if you could do the online teacher evaluation.
Here is a link to video of that event in Greece for refugees where they watched the Barcelona v. Real Madrid match and ate pizza (among other activities) this past weekend. I think it shows how much sports can mean to people even those who have much bigger things to worried about.
Please read Chapter 8 in the Binder and Reimers book (NOT in Foner). The chapter is called “A Better Time: New York CIty, 1945-1970.” We will also continue to discuss education issues that we raised in class on Monday.
There is no additional reading assignment for Monday. We will finish up with Netherland and then discuss Foner, Chapter 7 and that NYTimes article, “Where Education and Assimilation Collide.” I also hope to hear good updates on the Halal Cart project.
On Wednesday, April 19th, we will discuss your progress on your sections of the final project and wrap-up material in Chapters 5 and 7 of Foner as well as that NYTimes article on education. Please be prepared to provide details on your section of the Halal Cart project.
And here are questions for you to think about regarding “Netherland” which we will discuss on Thursday, April 20th: remember that we have class that day:
In addition to continuing our planning for the class project on Halal carts, we will catch up on several subjects that we skipped over a few weeks ago. Please take another look at the question sheets on Chapters 3,5, and 7 as well as the New York Times article, “Where Education and Assimilation Collide” and be prepared to discuss.
