We continued examining the debates that played out in the young republic today in a couple of ways. First, after taking some time to review the Constitution Graphic Organizer, we completed a DocBlock over two letters from Abigail and John Adams and discussed the implications of Republican Motherhood. We then proceeded to analyze some excerpts from the Federalist Papers and the anti-Federalist Papers and talked about how that debate was rooted in three competing views of Republicanism.
We wrapped up by looking at American at the time of Washington's election and then discussing the requirements of a good body paragraph. You can find the slide detailing what I will look for as I score your essays under APUSH Exam Review/Writing Tips on this website. You need to write a rough draft first body paragraph tonight had have it ready for peer critique tomorrow.
Your first exam over Chapters 1-10 and all class activities to day will be Thursday, followed by your first LEQ in class Friday! I will post a follow-up tonight with a list of everything I will be looking for in your binders during the Exam on Thursday.
