Today we focused on the late 1970's by first examining two different historical arguments about the period focusing on the effects of economic downturn. We then explored the major issues of the Carter administration, taking time to specifically explore the Camp David Accords and the Iran Hostage Crisis.
Also today I returned your feedback for your first DBQ's If you were absent and would like to see your feedback sheet before Monday's next in-class DBQ, shoot me an email this weekend and I can reply with your notes. The possible topics for Monday's DBQ will be drawn from the last two weeks of study: Cold War, Civil Rights Movement, Vietnam War, Great Society, Nixon administration and Watergate. Bee looking over the resources for writing DBQ's on the Writing Tips page and review the tips sheet below. You WILL NOT have this handout during this DBQ, but you will have the checklist as an aid.
