MARKING THIS WEEKEND

Hello all!

If you came here looking for your essay marks, I’m afraid you won’t find them this weekend.

I brought the wrong pile of essays home this weekend (the essays I already marked)…. so… I will only mark your essays Tuesday night. Sorry!

Regarding the open-book test on the 1950s-1990s + an essay.

You may choose your essay topic from ONE of the following THREE questions.
You may bring in ONE 8.5×11 paper divided into FOUR QUADRANTS (as previously) to assist with this essay.

1. To what extent did Canada become an autonomous nation between 1914-2000?
2. What has been the relationship between English and French Canada? Use examples from 1914-2000.
3. How has Canada’s treatment of minorities improved in the years between 1914-2000?

When you write the essay, you will be required to put the remainder of your notes away.

IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING

Since all the characters in Anthropoid were real people, it was possible to look up what happened to some of them.


Karel Curda, the snitch, was given a new identity, “Karl Jerhot”, and 1,000,000 Reichsmarks for turning in his friends. He married a German woman and spent the rest of the war as a Gestapo collaborator.

However, following the war, he was found guilty of treason and hanged on 29 April 1947.



ATA
was killed along with all his family.

Not sure what happened to Marie.

If you’re curious what the cast looked like in comparison to the real people, check it out here.

12 Marks Information
Each section or example will be given two marks.
1 mark for being well-written & clear.
1 mark for containing a NAME OR CLEAR EXAMPLE of what you are talking about in that section. Example must include either a name, or the name of an act or statute, or the name of an organization involved, or a statistic. If this example is not STRONG and FLESHED OUT, I will not award the mark.

EXAMPLE: It’s not enough to say: “Lots of people were racist.”  You have to back it up somehow, like, “In 1915, the Birth of a Nation was released. This film was a big hit at the time, and depicted black people as an evil hoard that were invading the serene, peaceful lives of the white population. Much of the population did not disapprove of these images of black people, as 75% of the population of Saskatchewan in 1929 was Protestant, with the vast majority of these being white. ”

12 Marks Art
Each section will be awarded two marks for containing ART or a VISUAL
1 mark for the art being relevant to the era & neatly inserted into the project at a standard equivalent to the notes I have given you.
1 mark for the art being laid out in such a way as to render the project legible.
