You can use the sources provided to you (see slide deck above).
Next class will be time spent working on the compare/contrast table and preparing for the Summative Socratic Discussion, so try to have all of your research notes for both revolutions completed by the time you come to the next class (A Blocks: Dec. 2; B Blocks, Dec. 3)
You should have notes from 3 sources by the time you arrive to next class (Dec. 2/Dec. 3)

There are several factors that may lead to a revolution--rarely is there only 1 cause. Often there are underlying factors.
Consider the story of Alphonse the Camel -- was this not true for poor Alphonse's death? Revolutions are similar...it is not always caused by the final straw.
Let's take a look at a modern-day revolution to see how it began and what underlying factors may have been present that contributed to the start:
- Mohamed Bouazizi: The Spark that Ignited the Arab Spring (the globalist)
- The Arab Spring: A Year of Revolution (NPR)
Evo Morales and Bolivia (the Guardian, 18 Nov. 2019)

- WHAT IS A REVOLUTION?
- WHAT ARE SOME CAUSES OF REVOLUTIONS?
- WHAT ARE SOME EXAMPLES OF REVOLUTIONS IN HISTORY?
- WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES (INTENDED & UNINTENDED) OF REVOLUTIONS?
You will be assessed using the following Shared Inquiry rubric:
HW: Finish Formative 'Age of Reason' Research Portfolio
