WCPSS has called an Early Release tomorrow, meaning classes will only meet for ~45 minutes per class. We can't bring everything together on Time Period 3 in that short of a period, so the Exam will be moved to MONDAY, 2/24! Please check back on this blog in WCPSS announces any other changes. If there are any further changes to our school schedule, we will post class schedule modifications here! :)
We started out today honing our thesis skills then shifted into content mode to examine the debates over ratifying the Constitution. We completed a DocBlock HAPP analysis over the political cartoon The Federal Edifice, then spent the following portion of class analyzing excerpts from the New York Constitutional Ratification Convention debates. Tonight you need to use your take aways from that analysis to respond to the questions posted below.
We ended up class with a brief discussion over how to write body paragraphs for our in-class essays. You can find the slideshow we used HERE. This includes the sample paragraph we looked at in class. Your task is to use the essay question and thesis statement you have already developed to write and submit ONE, rough draft, body paragraph by Monday (Mr. Hutchison's classes, use the Google Form linked HERE.)
Don't forget to have your Chapter 8a notes ready for tomorrow and be reviewing for Friday's exam! Below you will find the list of items I will be grading as you take the exam, so be sure you have them ready to turn in at the beginning of class that day!
