U.S. History;0;7th - Michael Conlin

Due Date Assignment Description
3/26/2020 La Marseillaise

Okay, time for some music!

We read about the French Revolution, the conflict with Britain, and how it affected U.S. politics. Now, let's take a closer look at the French Revolution. We'll do that by listening to (and reading the lyrics of) a song that came from that time period: "La Marseillaise," the song that is now the National Anthem of France. I uploaded the lyrics to a One Note document. Listen carefully and read the lyrics. When finished, answer the questions below, each in the number of sentences indicated in parentheses:

  1. What sort of emotions/feelings is this song is meant to bring out of the listener? Explain (three sentences)

  2. What lines from the song make you think that this was written to rally people in a time of war/invasion? (list three full lines)

  3. Judging from the song, what values do yo think the French were fighting for? Pick at least two lines to explain (three sentences)

The song:

We will have a zoom meeting today, so if you want to talk about the HW and go over the song together, join me at 8:45 (I know; its early, but it is the best time I could get...)

3/18/2020 Hamilton v. Jefferson

As soon as the new government got running under the Constitution, people started arguing about what to do. The two main figures in this battle in the 1790s were Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.

Read the "Hamilton v. Jefferson" document I uploaded to One Note. Then, copy/paste it onto your own document (I hope you can do this from One Note!) and complete the chart with p. 238-242 of your textbook. If you cannot make your own chart the best you can and do it yourself; it is not that hard.
