HUTCHISON & GREENBLATT'S CLASSES
Today's focus was on the early attempts at governing the new nation. We first debriefed the homework reading on Republican Motherhood then followed that up with an examination of the Articles of Confederation compared to our consensus list of the essential functions of government. We then dove into an analysis of the Northwest Ordinances and Indian Affairs in the 1780's with the goal of finding answers to the question of Congress' primary goal in relations with Indigenous nations. We then slipped into a brief analysis of another historical question on the significance of Shay's Rebellion in the formation of the Constitution and ended the day with peer critiques of your practice LEQ essays in progress.
Tonight, you need to complete the HAPP analysis over the letters from Abigail and John Adams found under Period 3 Recitation and wrap up your reading of chapter 8a up to page 230, "Revolution of 1800." Also, make sure to finish up revisions to your rough draft LEQ Intro and first body paragraphs tonight so you can turn those in for my feedback tomorrow!
