Monday – We have a few minutes to complete our discussion on American Imperialism and to review the Progressive presidents and legislation. We will be in the lab for the last 1/2 of class for you to complete your review folder on Imperialism/Progressive Era. *This 4 part folder will be due on Thursday which will be the same day that you will write your Long Essay. Instructions were on last week’s blog and you were shown samples in class. Anyone who needs help or extra time at school should make plans to stay after on Monday or Wednesday.
REMINDERS: I assume that you watched the crash courses assigned and that you have reviewed your readings handed out last week. Did you complete the reading questions, cartoons and charts related to Progressives? You had last week to review the historyteacher.net questions relevant to the group projects beginning with #17 few on New South, 18 -25. I may even use some questions from historyteacher.net for the last 2 topics on Imperialism and Progressive Era.
Tuesday – Students have the day off for election day and teachers will have professional learning.
Wednesday – Wear Red, White and Blue today to honor our veterans! Unit Test in class; Multiple choice only. I will hand out and review the Long Essay Grading Rubric.
