Summer So Far

Since Christmas I have been saving up some Best Buy gift cards and finally loaded them up on a purchase. I bought a new laptop this summer and decided on the inexpensive, sleek and small Chromebook. It's not for everyone. But, I am sure I will enjoy using this in the living room while watching tv to browse the net.

Here is my review on my personal site:
http://fordee.blogspot.com/2011/06/my-new-chromebook.html

Hope summer is treating all of you well. I am busy with going to physical therapy three days a week to work on improving my strength and balance. Also I've read a number of books this summer:

The Trilogy - "The Hunger Games"
Tuesday's With Morrie
and I am about to read the first book of "A Song of Fire and Ice" - A Game of Thrones.

Hope everyone has had a happy and safe summer so far.

Email to my students: Thank You All ~ Have a Great Summer = DFTBA!

I just finished reading all of the class survey reflections that you wrote.  I must say that I was quite choked up and shedding some tears at the end.  I will write up some of the things you guys wrote on my website this summer, anonymous of course.  A few of the responses to "words of warning for next year's students" and "book, song or movie title" and "what you'll remember 10 years from now" were priceless! 

Thank you all for a wonderful year.  It was the hardest year of teaching that I have ever had.  But, it was the most fulfilling.  Each of you has grown up, matured, and learned so much this year.  Having the chance to work with each of you on a daily basis and watching you improve helped me in ways I can't explain.  It is that daily inspiration that I am going to miss this summer.  The first couple of weeks of summer are going to be hard for me.  You may not realize how much I care about each of you and how important you are to me.  But, please know that I am always there for you in the future.  If there is ever ANYTHING I can do for you... do not hesitate to ask.  Please come back and visit me next year.  I can't tell you how much that will mean to me.  

Have a wonderful summer.  For those of you who are traveling to really incredible places, please drop me an email, Facebook message or text message and let me know.  I love seeing those cool pictures of fun times during the summer.  I won't be doing as much traveling this summer as I would like (other than being taken to neat places by some incredible books - currently reading "Hunger Games").  So seeing each of you having adventures would be great.

Best of luck in your junior year.  I truly believe that each and every one of you can succeed in APUSH or Dual Credit if you put the work into it.  I believe in you.  But, I know those of you who will take level US History will have an amazing experience as well.  We have great teachers in History at AHS and I am lucky to be a part of such a wonderful group.  You will see what I mean.  I have been bragging about you guys all year and that won't stop in the fall.  You will make me proud.  And I can't wait to hear from those of you who end up with Mrs. Duez your senior year for Economics.  She is the very BEST teacher in this school (and I admit it, better looking than me!).  

Please keep in touch and "Don't Forget To Be Awesome!"  Because each and every one of you are AWESOME.

Spring Final Exam Target Sheet

2010 Spring Final Targets

Agenda: Friday, May 19, 2011

Quote of the Day:  
"I found it more difficult to go back each time we squared away our gear to move forward into the zone of terror… And it wasn’t just dread of death or pain, because most men felt somehow they wouldn’t be killed… Each time we went up, I felt the sickening dread of fear itself and the revulsion at the ghastly scenes of pain and suffering among comrades that a survivor must witness. The increasing dread of going back into action obsessed me. It became the subject of the most tortuous and persistent of all the ghastly war nightmares that have haunted me for many, many years. The dream is always the same, going back up to the lines during the bloody month of May on Okinawa."
SOURCE:  Eugene Sledge: Memoir excerpts selections from "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa." 
Eugene Sledge and Actor Joe Mazzello (who played Sledge) from HBO's The Pacific
Learning Targets for WWII:
CH. 26:  The German and Japanese occupations of neighboring countries led to a brutal war that took millions of lives. Both countries were defeated, but not before the Nazis had killed millions of people in pursuit of Aryan domination of Europe.



• The war caused 20 million civilian deaths. 
• The United States, which did not fight the war on its own territory, sent its forces to fight and produced much of the military equipment for the Allies.
• After the war, ideological conflict between the West and the Soviet Union resulted in the Cold War.

Agenda:
1.  Hand in the Document Based-Question Essay from Chapter 24/26.  Mr. Duez will be working on these to finish in hopes that by Wed/Thu the grades should be in and finalized.

Quote of the Day:  "Dec. 7, 1941, a day that shall live in infamy!"  - Franklin Delano Roosevelt

Learning Targets for WWII:
CH. 24:  The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and the totalitarianism of Stalin and Hitler.

• The Japanese conquered the Pacific but miscalculated when they attacked the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor.

We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender!" 
Winston S. Churchill, During the Battle of Britain

CH. 26:  The German and Japanese occupations of neighboring countries led to a brutal war that took millions of lives. Both countries were defeated, but not before the Nazis had killed millions of people in pursuit of Aryan domination of Europe.


• Japanese expansion into Manchuria and northern China brought condemnation from the League of Nations. While still at war with China, Japan launched a surprise attack on U.S. and European colonies in Southeast Asia.
• German forces swept through northern Europe early in the war and set up the Vichy government in France.
• German air attacks on Great Britain resulted in fierce British retaliation.
• In the east, harsh weather and a resolute Soviet Union defeated an invading German army.

Agenda: Monday, May 16, 2011

Quote of the Day: "We have achieved peace for our time." - British Prime Minister Chamberlain after meeting with Hitler.

Learning Targets for WWII:
CH. 24:  The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and the totalitarianism of Stalin and Hitler. 

CH. 26:  The German and Japanese occupations of neighboring countries led to a brutal war that took millions of lives. Both countries were defeated, but not before the Nazis had killed millions of people in pursuit of Aryan domination of Europe.


• Aggressive moves by Germany and Japan set the stage for World War II. Adolf Hitler began a massive military buildup and instituted a draft in violation of the Treaty of Versailles.
• The German annexation of Austria alarmed France but did not shake Great Britain's policy of appeasement. Appeasement of Germany peaked at a conference in Munich where Hitler claimed he sought only one final territory, the Czech Sudetenland. This soon proved false.
• When Hitler signed a nonaggression pact with Stalin and invaded Poland, Britain and France declared war on Germany.
• Japanese expansion into Manchuria and northern China brought condemnation from the League of Nations. While still at war with China, Japan launched a surprise attack on U.S. and European colonies in Southeast Asia.
• German forces swept through northern Europe early in the war and set up the Vichy government in France.
• German air attacks on Great Britain resulted in fierce British retaliation.

Agenda:
1. Good News - Discuss the wonderful job by our Choir in their spring Showtime! production this past weekend.

Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Spring 2011

It has been hard to keep up with all the wonderful things that have happened with the MS Awareness Campaign and fund-raising that has gone on this spring at AHS.  I am attempting to keep up through this post and link to all the other stories.  It has been inspirational to me.
Mr. Duez thanks Ms. O'Brien

I can not tell you and fully express how grateful I am to everyone.  So many have given and wished me well, it is overwhelming.  The support has really given me the push I have needed to realize that even if I have been given a bad break, there are so many great people in my life.

There is no doubt that I will be coming back to this post and reading all of this during my very bad days.  It is this kind of support, friendship and spirit of community that is the best possible medicine I can receive.

It's a Great Day to be an Eagle!  DFTBA!

CH. 26:  The German and Japanese occupations of neighboring countries led to a brutal war that took millions of lives. Both countries were defeated, but not before the Nazis had killed millions of people in pursuit of Aryan domination of Europe.

• Hitler's Nuremberg Laws established official persecution of Jews. A more violent anti-Semitic phase began in 1938 with a destructive rampage against Jews and the deportation of thousands to concentration camps. Increasingly drastic steps barred Jews from attending school, earning a living, or engaging in Nazi society.
• After World War I, radio and film became sources of entertainment as well as propaganda tools. Hitler and the Nazis made wide use of both.
• To further their war effort and Hitler's plans for Aryan expansion, the Nazis forced millions of people to resettle as forced laborers. As part of the Nazis' Final Solution, Jews were locked into cramped, unsanitary ghettos or forced to dig their own mass graves before being killed.
• The Nazis killed between five and six million Jews and nine to ten million non-Jews.


Agenda:
1.  Finish Notes on Hitler's Rise to Power - Chapter 24 "Rise of Dictators"
2.  Discuss The Holocaust.  We will see video clips and discuss the impact of Hitler's Final Solution on our world today.

Quote of the Day:  “The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.” - Adolf Hitler

Learning Targets for WWII:
CH. 24:  The peace settlements at the end of World War I combined with severe economic problems to produce widespread discontent across Europe. Democratic rule in many states gave way to fascism, authoritarianism, and the totalitarianism of Stalin and Hitler. 


• Adolf Hitler, a failed student and artist, built up a small racist, anti-Semitic political party in Germany after World War I. Hitler's Beer Hall Putsch failed. In prison, he wrote Mein Kampf—an account of his movement and his views. As democracy broke down, right-wing elites looked to Hitler for leadership.
• In 1933 Hitler became chancellor. Amid constant chaos and conflict, Hitler used terror and repression to gain totalitarian control. Meanwhile, a massive rearmament program put Germans back to work. Mass demonstrations and spectacles rallied Germans around Hitler's policies.
• Hitler's Nuremberg Laws established official persecution of Jews. A more violent anti-Semitic phase began in 1938 with a destructive rampage against Jews and the deportation of thousands to concentration camps. Increasingly drastic steps barred Jews from attending school, earning a living, or engaging in Nazi society.
• After World War I, radio and film became sources of entertainment as well as propaganda tools. Hitler and the Nazis made wide use of both.


Agenda:

Thank You AHS Patriettes

Mr. & Mrs. Duez before the Patriette Banquet
This is a very special thank you to the AHS Patriettes, Ms. Rayburn and Ms. Marches and all those special dancing young ladies that Mr. and Mrs. Duez has had in class throughout the years.  The spirit of your team is so strong and all of you represent AHS with such incredible grace, talent, and class.

Thank you for donating money to our MS Foundation Campaign this spring.  The Patriette Spring Show was inspiring.  Thank you as well for inviting Mrs. Duez and I to the Patriette banquet.  We were grateful for you to allow us to share in that special night with all of you.

As the National MS Society slogan says: "Keep Moving!"



I have been honored to dance at half time during the father-daughter dance as a fill in for two of my very favorite former students.  So I guess I have always jokingly considered myself as an 'honorary' Patriette. :)  After all of your kindness and love this spring, I really feel like one!

Crisis of Credit - the 2008 "Great Recession" Explained

The Short and Simple Story of the Credit Crisis. By Jonathan Jarvis. Crisisofcredit.com JonathanJarvis.com
Part I:


Part II:



Sept. 29, 2008: Vlogbrother Hank explains the crisis of credit... using hats.  Hank (and Hank and Hank and Hank and Hank) give an extremely simplified account of how we got into such a terribly gigantic financial mess in America.



Vlogbrother John explains his thoughts on the Stimulus Package and Keynesian economics.

In which John discusses the financial crisis, recessions, and the fiscal stimulus bill just passed by the US Congress and expected to be signed by President Obama. And John Maynard Keynes. Oh, and he brags about his Academic Decathalon bronze medal.

Oh and if you're wondering why I'm not talking about CEO compensation and corporate jets, it's because they aren't EVEN SLIGHTLY relevant to the health of the American economy.
