Lower Sixth: Essay

Leave a comment

Since many of you weren’t here today, this is the essay title that is due on the 9th of Jan.

“How far do you agree that the most important reason the Republicans lost the 1932 election was Hoover’s policy decisions since 1929?”

You will find lots of information in the shared folder in the America section – the section 1 revision sheet is particularly useful as is the transcript for the Great Courses (lectures 64 & 65 I think). You will also find a link to the Washington Post’s programmes on the Presidents in the America section of the blogroll.

 

I hope you have a relatively restful break

Nearly ready for Indian food day.

The Anglo-Indian contribution is a nice and spicy Chicken Tikka Masala. What else should I be looking forward to?

10th India Food Day: 18/12/17

As discussed, please produce 1 dish each (a ‘dish’ can be rice or bread as long as it is regional, interesting (no plain boiled rice unless it specifically goes with a dish) and as authentic as possible). Each “team” should produce  a main and a starter or a desert (i.e. not 2 the same). Please post a comment here saying what you will be cooking so that we can all get excited.

 

You must also create information sheets which tell the rest of us about the dishes you have prepared.
