Today we covered the 1980's and 1990's focusing on a variety of issues, from politics to international affairs, to social and economic issues. We also did the Chapter 31 Quiz.
Tomorrow is your in-class DBQ essay. The topic will be drawn from something we have covered this week. As a reminder, this week we have discussed liberal programs of the 1960's reflected in the Great Society and the rising conservative reaction through the Nixon Administration to Reagan. We discussed international issues of growing tensions in the Middle East and the re-heating of the Cold War during the 1980's. We also talked about economic downturns starting in the late 1960's and various attempts to turn it around. Tonight, we recommend reviewing the information on the "Writing Tips" page of the website on writing DBQ's and looking over the practice DBQ's under Period 8.
