Daily Activity 4/19

English

  • Students did a group activity researching the Greek Gods and their qualities.

World History

  • Students continued watching the Monuments Men
  • After the movie students read two news articles on the fate of the Nazi-Looted Art: The Louvre Puts Nazi-Looted Art in Public Eye in Effort to Find Rightful HeirsGermany seeks return of art looted by Russian soldiers during WWII
  • Homework:
    • Nazi Looted Art Reflection 1 page
      • After reading and taking notes on the two articles and watching the documentary and film on the Monuments Men reflect on what you have learned. Should countries be actively working to locate the owners of the Nazi-looted art? Should countries that stole some of that looted artwork, like Russia, be forced to return it to Germany and thereby the original owners’ descendants? Why or why not? How would you tackle this potentially diplomatic problem today?
