Today we discussed some of the economic and cultural issues that developed during the antebellum years, focusing on the Second Great Awakening, its relationship to Transcendentalism and the resulting reform movements of the era. We also looked at changing demographics, technologies and the emerging market revolution.
If you did not finish analyzing your individual document for our literature circles exercise at the end of class, please make sure to do that this weekend. Also, make sure you have Chapter 9 ready for Monday.
Monday's in-class LEQ will focus on developments in politics, parties, and society during the Jackson Administration, and could include information covered in Chapter 9 as well as the chapters we read last week>
