Today we wrapped up the Jackson era with a SkillBlock analyzing some political cartoons and then introduced the Antebellum reform movements with our DocBlock and Content Block stations. We also spent some time introducing DBQ skills using the document from our DocBlock. Expect more of the DBQ activities to be coming in the next two weeks!
Homework this weekend can all be found under Period 5 on the website. The first thing you should tackle is the Nat Turner Webquest, which is due Monday. Then you need to begin reading and working on the selection for your first scored discussion. The discussion is next Tuesday and will cover the reading from Howard Zinn titled "We Take Nothing by conquest, Thank God." Below the link for the reading, you will find a link to the directions for your written response which is due when you come to class Tuesday. You will be able to use this response during the in class portion of the discussion. After the in class portion, I will post your participation scores here on the blog and then you will have a week to complete the online follow up discussion.
