Today was our second scored discussion, this one over the question of genocide in Westward Expansion. It generated some good discussion and clash and I was proud of how well you all handled that! The online discussion board is now open and will be until Tuesday, October 245 at midnight! The posting rules are the same as last time and details can be found on the discussion board. You can get to the board by clicking the "Discussion Boards" tile on the home page of the website then clicking the "Discussion #2" link.
Don't forget that Chapter 18 is due Friday! The next scored discussion will be on Wednesday, October 25 and will be drawn from a reading by Howard Zinn once more, this time on the issue of big business in the Gilded Age. The reading, etc. can be found on the Period 6 page.
