Today we wrapped up Period 5 with a discussion over Reconstruction. We debriefed your thoughts coming out of your textbook reading then compared that to four major historiographical schools of thought using a brief essay by historian Alan Brinkley. We next wrestled with the question of freedom for African Americans during Reconstruction through an analysis of a set of documents. We finished the day with a DocBlock Lit Circle over the "Voices of Reconstruction," which you can find under Period 5 on this website if you did not finish in class.
Monday is your second exam. It will cover Period 4 & 5, 1800-1877, Chapters 8-16. As last time, it will be 45 multiple choice questions followed by 2 short answers. I have posted the list of class activities, DocBlock's and textbook chapters you should have in your binders from these two units.
