Link to Online Textbook (World History 2 – Mr. Stewart)

While my class is based on materials that I have assembled and/or created myself, sometimes it’s good to have a textbook to use as a reference for study or review.

I will be sure to reference what chapter(s) attach to what we are doing in class so you have that reliable resource to complement our work in the classroom.

World History – May 20 to 23

No class this Friday, half day with a PM schedule . . . Songfest!

For the four days we have together, we will look at the Chinese revolution, the ascendancy of Mao Zedong, and the transformation of the Chinese economy under Deng Xiaopeng.

Finally, we will contrast the thriving Chinese communist (is it really?) system with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Why did Deng Xiaopeng succeed in saving China while Mikhail Gorbachev did not have the same level of success in keeping the Soviet Union from disintegrating?
