We began today by conducting some historical contextualization using one page from a Montana newspaper from 1870, tying together all of the various elements we have studied in Period 6. We focused the rest of the day on the Progressive reform movement of the late 1800's, investigating exemplar issues in terms of advocacy, opposition, and legacy in African American Civil Rights and Women's Suffrage.
Chapter 22 is due Thursday and Friday will be the last of the first cycle of DBQ essays! Next week is the toughest week of the entire quarter with four chapters, a scored discussion and an LEQ at the end of the week! We told you this week would be coming from the first day of class, so hopefully you have a plan in place! The good news... it begins to wind down after next week with only three weeks left of new content before the AP exam! :)
