August 1977. In spite of the incredible heat the people enthusiastically cut the berdi reeds (similar, but different from the reeds used for the Ra vessels) and hauled it to a northernmost point. Meanwhile, the Aymara men from Peru were enroute to participate in the construction. #thorheyerdahl#worldhistory#adventurestory
Pada 14 Agustus 1945, Presiden Harry S. Trauman mengumumkan kepada dunia bahwa Jepang telah bersedia menyerah tanpa syarat kepada Sekutu.
Beberapa hari sebelumnya, pemerintah Jepang telah mengumumkan hal tersebut kepada rakyatnya melalui Kaisar Hirohito.
Akan tetapi serangan masih tetap berlangsung, terutama diwilayah Okinawa Jepang oleh pasukan Amerika Serikat dan wilayah Manchuria atau daerah pendudukan Jepang yang diserang oleh Pasukan Rusia.
Lalu atas kondisi yang terjadi itulah, Presiden Amerika Serikat Harry S. Truman mengumumkan bahwa, pihak sekutu telah setuju untuk mengakui bahwa Jepang telah menyerah.
Sehingga dengan penyerahan diri Jepang, secara tidak langsung Perang Dunia II telah selesai dan membuka gerbang kemerdekaan bagi negara negara dudukan blok poros seperti Indonesia.

The empire of Japan officially announces their unconditional surrender following the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The formal singing of the surrender would not be until September 2nd 1945. Upon singing this treaty the hostilities of #Worldwar2 had come to a close.
DATE DAY ✨
We FINALLY went to see the Viking exhibition at @melbournemuseum (We have been saying we will go since it opened in March 😂)
It was soo interesting and so beautiful to see all those old remains of what they wore, what they used in battle and in their everyday life. It’s so fascinating and definitely something I REALLY keen to find out more !
Akhir Agustus 79 tahun yang lalu, #Hitler dan penguasa #Rusia#Stalin mengagetkan dunia. Keduanya menandatangani perjanjian tidak saling serang. Tentu saja mereka bukannya berteman, dan Hitler masih berencana menghancurkan Rusia, seperti telah lama dia impikan. Namun dia ingin Stalin tetap netral untuk sementara sambil dia menghajar tetangga lain lagi, yang kebetulan berada di antara #Jerman dan Rusia. Stalin, yang agak takut Hitler, menyambut baik perjanjian itu. .
Seminggu kemudian, gelombang demi gelombang pesawat terbang Jerman bergerak ke timur menuju Polandia. Jerman dengan cepat menguasai separuh Polandia. Stalin tidak protes. Dia dan Hitler sudah menyetujui serangan Jerman itu dalam klausa rahasia di perjanjian tak saling serang. Sebagai gantinya, Jerman memperbolehkan Rusia mengambil alih Polandia timur, yang tadinya dilepas Rusia sesudah akhir Perang Dunia I.

Shortly after midnight on this day in 1961, East German soldiers began laying down barbed wire and bricks as a barrier between Soviet-controlled East Berlin and the democratic western section of the city.
The Berlin Wall was one of the most powerful and iconic symbols of the Cold War. In June 1963, Kennedy gave his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” (“I am a Berliner”) speech in front of the West Wall, celebrating the city as a symbol of freedom and democracy in its resistance to tyranny and oppression.
Finally, in the late 1980s, East Germany, fueled by the decline of the Soviet Union, began to implement a number of liberal reforms. On November 9, 1989, masses of East and West Germans alike gathered at the Berlin Wall and began to climb over and dismantle it. As this symbol of Cold War repression was destroyed, East and West Germany became one nation again, signing a formal treaty of unification on October 3, 1990.
Enslaved women were forced to have sex with their owners, but their masters considered this a favor. White men often claimed they were doing Black women a favor by saving them from having sex with Black men who were considered to be animalistic and brutal. @blackhistoryhitman #slavery#worldhistory#terrorism#depopulation#holocaust
Sucked in 🤪🍭 Fire gave us power. Gossip helped us cooperate. Agriculture made us hungry for more. Mythology maintained law and order. Money gave us something we can really trust. Contradiction created culture. Science made us deadly. This is the thrilling account of our extraordinary history- from insignificant apes to rulers of the world. Sooo well written❤️! Bold, wide-ranging and provocative, Sapiens challenges everything we though we knew about being human: our beliefs, our actions, our power... and our future. It’s not often that a book offers readers the possibility to reconsider, well, everything 😜#internationalbestseller#worldhistory#books#yuval_noah_harari
This 102 yr old man drove the same Rolls Royce for 82 years. Mr. Allen Swift received this 1928 Rolls-Royce Piccadilly-P1 Roadster from his father, brand new – as a graduation gift in 1928. It was donated to a Springfield museum after his death last year. #102yearold#man#drove#RollsRoyce#82years
During the Great Depression, "in rural areas, farmers struggled to survive as produce prices dropped more than 50 percent. Furthermore, a prolonged drought afflicted the Great Plains area of the Midwest, turning the region into a giant Dust Bowl. The situation encouraged agrarian unrest; farmers fought evictions and foreclosures by attacking those who tried to enforce them. Farmers also conspired to keep prices at farm auctions low and then returned the auctioned property to its original owner. In addition, they formed the Farmers' Holiday Association, which organized demonstrations and threatened a nationwide walkout by farmers in order to raise prices." (The Princeton Review)
❓❓❓Which New Deal Act provided payments to farmers in return for their agreement to cut production by up to one-half?
I thought I'd try something new on the 'Gram this week and go through my process for creating a new lesson plan. I started it in my story today and will be updating throughout the week.... Or however long it takes to finish.
This lesson will be on President Eisenhower's goal of promoting peace through his People to People Program and speeches on reducing military expenditures. I think it could be a meaningful beyond the typical Cold War lessons on war, strife, & paranoia.
Of course, this kind of planning only works for the summer - for sure there's no way to spend a week creating one lesson during the year 😵😂. Stay tuned for more updates throughout the week!
Another great day prepping for the school year ....especially when you realized so much hasn’t changed. 🤪 Meet Jane, our fabulous chemistry teacher and my Ohioan friend. ❤️ We are in different stages of our lives but she’s my sanity.... and LUNCH 🥗 BUDDY! She’s my #secondfloor hall mate and one who calms my young momma heart, my on-call webmd and brainstorming friend. 😜 She gets to see the students in a different capacity than me and because of that, we have had many great discussions about how we can reach certain students. You know we’re starting the year off like nothing’s changed when she says “you’re stressing me out” hahaha #somuchhaschanged#nothingschanged#chemistry#worldhistory @jvstark
I can’t believe I missed my first #shelfiesunday ... can we do #shelfiemonday instead?🙈
Anyway, here’s my non-fiction shelf! It is absolutely not all of my non-fiction; I have another shelf above this one, and plenty mixed in with my fiction shelf.
How do you organize your shelves? My fiction is alphabetical by author’s last name, but my non-fiction goes by category. These are my American history and world history shelves 📚
So many ways to apply content on a deeper level and still keep students engaged! Check out this graphic for lots of ideas that I use in my classroom and ideas I still hope to try from other teachers! ———
What would you add to the list?!
