Today we started class with a quick peer review session for our practice LEQ essays. You final revisions are due this Thursday! You will be graded on evidence of revision for improvement, so you need to turn in everything you have generated: rough drafts, revised copies, etc.
After the peer review, we dove into the Jefferson administration and the War of 1812. In particular we examined the causes of the War of 1812 from a western point of view in an attempt to bring more meaning to the event. In that process, we looked in particular at the conflict over the Indiana Territory which led to a pan-Indian resistance movement led by Tecumseh and his brother Tenskwatawa, or The Prophet.
We will not meet tomorrow for the first three periods of the day due to the ACT test. Make sure that in the meantime you have familiarized yourself with the major cases of the Marshall Court. You can find a set of court briefs under Period 4 on this website.
