So apparently posting Blogs from my home has not been working! I apologize for those of you that may have come here looking for details on what happened in class and didn't find any updates over the last little bit. If there is ever a delay in the blog post past 6:00 pm, please shoot me an email so I can see if I can get it working.
Today we spent the day doing some extended historiography of the work of four different historians on the issue of American Imperialism. Please make sure you are bring your analysis of these arguments, along with the work you did Thursday while I was out (slideshow of activities still active under Period 7). into tomorrow's scored discussion. The readings and the pre-write directions are posted under Period 7.
PLEASE REMEMBER: The opportunity to make up in-class points using the online discussion is only available to students who are absent on the day of the discussion. If you are present in class, you are responsible for contributing to the conversation in a meaningful way tomorrow to earn your points in-class.
