John Oliver Secondary School Ms Ink

Wednesday December 13

2-1 S.S 8: I collected homework from students. Then, I gave a lecture on Spanish Explorers and the horrible ways they treated the First Nations Peoples of the Americas. We discussed how Columbus was a slave trader, intentionally spread disease and intentionally murdered First Nations people. Many other Spanish colonists acted in this way as well. Then, we analyzed political cartoons that questioned Columbus’s fame – should such a horrible person have an american holiday dedicated to them? 

No Homework 

2-4 ELL S.S: We talked about child labour during the Industrial Revolution and watched a part of a documentary that told the horrible stories and experiences of these children. Students took note of 5 examples of how children were mistreated in the workplace. Afterwards, I started a short lecture on the Environmental impacts of the Industrial Revolution. We will finish this next day and begin to review for our TEST ON TUESDAY DECEMBER 19!
