Remember to save your work on a flash drive or your hard drive when you are finished, in case you need to edit it later.

HW12: Create a political cartoon that expresses how the European powers tried to accomplish their goals at the Congress of Vienna. Guidelines: 1) It must be a one-panel cartoon, NOT a comic strip; 2) It must have a title.
3) It must use symbols (pictures that represent people or ideas) and the symbols should be labeled to indicate what they represent. Due Friday.
Here's a sample political cartoon related to current events! Notice the use of symbols, labels, and exaggeration.

HW11: (DOUBLE HOMEWORK). Write a position paper in response to the question “Was Napoleon a friend or foe of the French Revolution? Defend your position using details from your class notes and textbook pages 663-671. Consider these questions as you make your argument: 1) What were the goals of the French Revolution? 2) How did Napoleon’s rule reform France? 3) How did Napoleon achieve these reforms? Include an introduction that states your position, at least two body paragraphs, and a conclusion. Remember, addressing the counter-claim makes for a strong paper!
