Today we want to continue looking at how imperialism shook out around the globe. Today's powerpoint presentation reviews the fine points of yesterday's reading, plus introduces European Imperialism in Muslim lands, and focuses on 3 main groups: the Ottoman Turks, the Egyptians, and Persia (modern day Iran). To hammer it home, please read the 23.3 Short read, but DO NOT COMPLETE THE WORKSHEET!
Song for the day
I have been getting a slew of emails asking a lot of questions, and I'm afraid I just don't know the answers to everything right now. Things are moving so rapidly and changing by the day. A lot of students are freaked out; my own kids, while happy to be out of school are freaked out, but it's times like these that you have to just slow down and take it easy. These are uncharted waters. To help ease the tension (and while we look at Imperialsiam around the globe), just listen to the song Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. Breathe in through your nose, out through your mouth, repeat, and know that whatever happens, it will all work out.
