We started off today with a Quiz over Chapter 21 (Remember that Chapter 22 is due Thursday and we are "behind" a quiz since we cancelled the one for Chapter 16!). After that, we wrapped up our discussion over the LitCircles we started for DocBlock yesterday. We then spent the rest of class discussing the progressive reform movements through the lens of some historical questions drawn from specific reform movements, particularly the African American Civil Rights movement and those opposed to the Women's Suffrage movement.
Tonight your online comments for Scored Discussion #2 are due by 11:59pm and tomorrow we will have Scored Discussion #3 in class! You only have ONE reading for this discussion and it does not include guiding questions. By this point, you should be able to identify and ask yourself the kinds of questions we have given you for guidance as you are reading. When you are preparing for the discussion, make sure you ask yourself, "what might other historians argue in opposition to this selection? What evidence might they utilize and how might they interpret it?"
Seven days until Spring Break! Hang in there guys!
