Humanities for Wisdom
Be curious insightful historians.We are working in chapter 10 and we are trying to understand Manifest Destiny and the expansion of the United States into the west. If you have time you might look at the list of topics you have been studying since kindergarten . I also hope that you might learn more about the Spanish period and the Californio period. The Ranchos and the culture that was present is sometimes not known by many residents of the Golden State. I hope you can also check out the maps on the missions and California native Americans.[2, 3] Understanding the geography of the areas we live in can help us to understand why things are the way they are at time. Scientific study of human interactions is very important.[4-10] The Mission period and the Mexican families that came up after the fighting against the Spanish and French to free Mexico in 1821. The human interactions that are happening in the Pacific region that we are studying is very complicated and nuanced. We hope we can better understand then to compare to now. Below are many links that will be assigned for homework. These links will help you in many ways with your Chapter 10 interactive notebook.[4-6] Please do not forget your online textbook too. You can use it on many devices. Be curious insightful historians. You should almost be done with the chapter notes.

Everyone is living history
Philosophie: Salon Center
Everyone of us is living history. We all have a story to tell and the ancestors that came before us that carved a way for us to become a new member of civilization. We also are learning that we are all related genetically and culturally in the family of humanity. All people’s past becomes part of all of us, and will always be completely intertwined with the entire world community.
From time to time we will have some ideas from words that give us wisdom about our world. Writers are some of the most insightful people that understand our modern and ancient world quite well. Feel free to read, think, comment on these ideas. It seems that some of the students would like to debate issues of government, economics, and history. This can be a forum for this idea. Also if you would like to do formal debates in class we need to prepare debate rule and procedures. This can be a start and then we can decide if we will proceed to bring the debates in class on topics we study. Please follow our classroom rules if you decided to write on the blog. Make sure that you ask questions, and be helpful, and mature in all your interactions. This can be a helpful way for you to share what you have learned and what you want to learn, or just share ideas. Also just submit an idea through an email, or web contact, and we can maybe add the idea. Send a picture with the suggestion for the classes. Thank you.
Photos above left to right: The Solon, by Raphael was a depiction of the place where ideas were discussed and debated. Greek democracy in the public sphere. Here is the philosopher Seneca talking to Nero-Claudius Cesar Drusus Germanicus [Roman Emperor 54-68 BCE]- about society,law, politics, ethics and morality. Anthem for the doomed!
Students can also decide to add a topic that can be approved and monitored by Mr.C. Please be responsible and follow the social contract. You can share ideas and questions on your now topics about our class. Friends can help each other study with their devices. Please only students, but fell free to share the forum communications with your family. This can be a source for all students.
