Arab Spring

Greetings everybody. We're finishing up our discussion on the Arab Spring in the next couple of days. Students looked at the positive and negative outcomes involved with the Arab Spring today. We watched a couple clips... While there appear to be a few minor inaccuracies in the first video, the problems don't conflict with the lesson. You can watch it if you want:


 We watched this one as well... It's also short.


To get the extra credit today, students should read the blog with an adult, then discuss the Arab Spring. What caused it? What potential good can come from it? What are the negatives? Then, write the following quote on a scrap piece of paper: "Our chains are already forged." Then, have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign the paper.
