Today it's all about China - the end of the Imperial system, rise of nationalism, and eventual turn toward Communism that results in a civil war that outlasts WWII! It's a pretty big story, and while I am asking you to look at the Short Read today, please make sure you view the Crash Course video on China (I have posted it in Arabic too! Don't watch both...they are the same: 1 in English; one in Arabic) and while you are viewing it please complete the Crash Course video questions. Submit pics on Google Classroom.
Song of the day
Today we have a song from a band I met when one of the summers I performed on the Warped Tour. They are all from Los Angeles, and I was impressed with how they were able to blend a lot of different influences like traditional Latino music with funk, soul, and rap. Here's the band Ozomatli with one of their best jams, Cut Chemist Suite.
