This is a blog designed for students to gain access to information regarding Mr. Marshall's courses at Pender Harbour Secondary School, and as a means of networking to share ideas. Visit my new classroom blog at jmarshalrce.blogspot.ca
Today, we reviewed Marx's vision for the transition from capitalism to the workers' utopia. Next, we started the study of the events that led to the 1905 October Manifesto - really the Tsar's last chance to save his throne. You should know about the Russo-Japanese War and the dissatisfaction caused by the Portsmouth Treaty. Bloody Sunday and Father Gapon are also must knows. We also looked at the different groups that made up Russian society at the turn of the century. Please read the handout on the Stolypin agrarian reforms for homework.
