Our last quiz, this one over Chapter 32, was today! After the quiz, we analyzed two different points of view on the First Gulf War and then discussed the historical continuities the conflict could be interpreted to represent. We then discussed some of the political and social shifts that occurred in the 1990's and analyzed a couple of formative events in the Clinton administration, including DADT, Healthcare, the "Contract with America," Domestic Terror, NAFTA, and the Kyoto Protocol. We finished up with an examination of the impeachment process in which Clinton was found guilty/not guilty (the Senate found that, yes, he perjured himself, but it was not in a matter that rose to the level of a "High Crime or Misdemeanor").
Tomorrow we will wrap up new content with a discussion of the major issues from the election of 2000 to today. Friday will be your last DBQ essay and then Monday will be your last regular exam. You will find the binder requirements list for Monday posted below.
