Agenda: Monday, April 5, 2010

Quote of the Day:  

Aidan on Easter, "This is awesome.Way better than Halloween. You get candy and don't have 2 walk to houses!" The mind of a 5 yr old.

Learning Targets:
*  Competition over trade and colonies led to the formation of two rival European alliances—the Triple Entente of Great Britain, France, and Russia; and the Triple Alliance, consisting of Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Italy.
* Repeated crises over Serbian claims on the Austro-Hungarian region of Bosnia revealed the dangers inherent in these alliances. Austria-Hungary, as well as numerous other European governments, confronted challenges from minorities that wished to establish their own national states. 
*  Strikes and violent actions by Socialist labor movements also threatened European governments. Many states responded with increasing militarism.
*  The assassination of the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary by a Bosnian Serb militant set off a chain of diplomatic and military decisions that led all of the great powers of Europe into World War I.
