Science seems vague, does it not?

Love the topic especially since I teach World History, but I hate the book....

Imperialism!!! Super excited! And music of the Romantic period- I'm surprised by that. We just did that my senior year in 2003. I can't wait to get started on this. Soooo excited!

The material is going to be quite vague this year, the content seems to cover a period of about 500 years. However, you can expect very thick guides.

I think this is good, not as chaotic as Mexico, but not as restrained and specific as the French Revolution and the Great Depression, and I still don't fully understand what the science is

There is an image of the CD on the materials brochure. It looks as if we're listening to the same stuff as we did in 2003. I see several Beethovens and Wagner's 'Ride of the Valkyries.' Anyone with better eyes?

Hartman NAILED it yesterday. The topic came up in coaches discussions over the weekend. I like topics like this because they have long term applications for high school students when they get to college. Very relieved I don't have to learn a new music scale (China) or something else bizarre.

Topic is relevant because what we have been experiencing in Africa and the Middle East over the last 50 years are the post-imperialist consequences. This is not a political statement it is an historical statement. Our students will leave with a deeper understanding of the causes for the 20th century conflicts.

Our AP Literature teacher, who is brilliant, does a long treatment of 'Heart of Darkness' and all the kids come out of it loving that story. This is wonderful. smile.gif

late 19th century is the age of invention. It could be an endless list of the second industrial revolution, advancements in medicine (quinine) that made Imperialistic conquests possible, and of course weaponry ... railroad technology, bessemer process... hmmm could be very broad yet connected.

The 2003-04 music was also the Romantic Era. I suspect they will repeat a lot of it.

We studied Verdi's 'Anvil Chorus' that year.

Rossini's William Tell Overture
Verdi's Anvil Chorus
Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries

are ones I can make out.

EDIT:
Dvorak's 9th Symphony IV Movement as well.

These are all exactly the same as 2004.

I just checked, they did not use the Dvorak piece, so they probably adding a couple of new selections while reusing a ton of works used earlier.

They probably have the mindset that current competitors have no experience with the content.

I see a Mussorgsky piece as well.

They should not limit themselves to the big name selections.

You're right - it was Mahler's Titan last time.

Is it 'Night on Bald Mountain?' That's what they had last time. It might be 'Pictures at an Exhibition' instead, though.

That's the 'New World Symphony' so that makes a lot of sense. smile.gif
