We started class today with a DocBlock over excerpts from the autobiography of Joseph Plumb Martin, a soldier in the American Revolution. We next talked about the Articles of Confederation in terms of how they match up with the goals of good government, followed by a brief examination of textbook coverage of Shay's Rebellion versus the more nuanced reality from historical documents. We then wrestled with the issue of slavery in the Constitution and ended the day with a second DocBlock over two letters between Abigail and John Adams.
Don't forget Chapter 8 is due tomorrow as well as your revisions to your LEQ practice essay and your rough draft of your next body paragraph. Below you will also find a list of the DocBlocks and class Content Block activities that should be in your binder on exam day this Friday.
