Tomorrow is Exam 3. It will be 55 multiple choice and 2 short answers (out of four choices). Here are the links to the theme posters for Unit 6 and Unit 7. Don't forget, Wednesday will be your next scored discussion, so you will need to finish up those readings and the prewrite tomorrow night! Here is the link to the binder check list as well.
Today we examined various responses to the New Deal during its own time. Tonight you will read some more contemporary historian's points of view on the New Deal.. Under Period 7 Activities, number 12, you will find a chart assigning a particular reading selection to each student, a set of analysis questions to answer and the two reading selections. This is due TOMORROW! The Chapter notes originally due Thursday have been moved to Friday! :)
If you went to the NC American Indian Heritage Celebration today, your task to receive mastery credit is to write a brief (3 paragraph or so) reflection on the following:
We continued our examination of the secondary sources on Imperialism today by comparing and contrasting the various points of view and evaluating their use of supporting evidence. We then started exploring some primary sources on Imperialism with an eye toward which secondary source's interpretation you believe they most supported. We will finish this process Monday.
Don't forget the mastery opportunity tomorrow with the NC American Indian Heritage Celebration. It is at the NC Museum of History downtown from 11:00 to 4:00. Come back to the blog here afterwards to find follow up directions! Don't forget to take a selfie!
We took most of the period today to focus on analyzing points of view. We began with a Gilded Age dinner party exercise using POV to determine probable attitudes, then proceeded to tear apart the chapters on Imperialism from four different textbooks. I was very satisfied with the analysis resulting from your table work! Tomorrow we will put it all together and compare points of view!
Today we discussed the Progressive Reformers of the Gilded Age through an exploration of historical documents related to a few different reform movements. We also took the Chapter 21 quiz. Your next chapter will be due on Monday!
Today we introduced the Progressive era by looking at some of the issues America faced in the Gilded age then evaluating the approaches to create change used by muckrakers and progressive reformers.
Don't forget that Chapter 21 is due tomorrow. Also, the online portion of yesterday's scored discussion is due Monday.
There is a mastery opportunity this weekend if you are interested and have the time available. The 21st annual American Indian Heritage Celebration will be held in downtown Raleigh in and around the NC Museum of History. I'm including a link to information about the event below. If you would like to take advantage of this opportunity, attend at least part of the event, take a selfie there and then return to the blog Saturday evening for details on the follow-up assignment. It will be entered as an extra assignment in the Quizzes category in the gradebook. As with any mastery assignment, it is all or nothing. If you are unable to go to the event this weekend, we will post a replacement opportunity next Monday. You cannot do both for extra points, only one assignment will be entered into the gradebook.

We had our fourth scored discussion today. You can find the online discussion board for the follow up discussion HERE. Don't forget that Chapter 21 is due Wednesday!
