History of Revolutions

Delacroix_Liberty.jpgThis wikispace is designed to support students at Bendigo Senior in their study of the French Revolution. The space currently contains pages on Revolutionary Leaders and Revolutionary Events from Area of Study 2 (August 5 1789 - 1795). It is expected that every student would contribute an entry in both sections.

The intention is that this space will also be used to revise image analysis as well as for revision of the course in Semester 2.
