In it, you have to do some research on the development of the railway network in Argentina (as influenced by the English) in the 1800. Provide also a map of the network at the time. (You can/should establish a comparison with the network nowadays and/or with the network in England in the 1800).
This is a double virtual period, so your deadline is: October, 13th.
Finish watching the movie “Marie Antoinette”, by Sofia Coppola. (The link was provided by Alina in your Facebook group).
Then, answer the following questions and post them in your blogs:
Marie Antoinette is sometimes referred to as “The Teenage Queen”. What attitudes in the movie can show that?
After her first child is born she shows many changes in her attitude and lifestyle. How? Provide examples. Why do you think that happens?
Some historians have often suggested that Marie Antoinette’s behaviour helped encourage agitation in the people at the beginning of the Revolution. Can you find any instances in the movie that confirm or deny this claim?
Towards the end of the movie, we see a more mature woman. How does she show she has somehow stopped being “The Teenage Queen”?
This is our virtual period of the week after the winter break… Since I won’t be seeing you tomorrow, here it goes…
Find key information about Napoleon Bonaparte’s life (dates, early life, achievements, political career, etc) and prepare a short powerpoint, prezi or any kind or presentation with it. (This is not for any oral presentation, just to post in your blogs).
Deadline: August, 4th. They need to be ready and uploaded before our class that day, since we will take a look at them in class.
