Please note…#25 is asking for 2 different people. Please give the author of the book, his book AND the person who went to West Africa and why. I combined 2 questions and didn’t fix the wording.

“The black abolitionist _____ wrote the book _____ that called for a bloody end to slavery & white supremacy. He also visited West Africa in 1859. What was the purpose of the trip?”

B Dayers – 2 of you are missing the last page of the HW (Cause & Effect & Map Mastery). Here are the pages that MIGHT be missing from your Chapter 16 homework last page of HW


Unit 2 Test Helpful Hints…

Birth of the BUS…how?          March of the Millions (Chapter 14)          Monroe’s foreign policy

Oh No! tariffs & nullification          Tecumseh, the Prophet – what did they want?

Transcendentalists… what about them?          Unions – why?

Van Buren – commerce or farming? BUS or no BUS          War of 1812 – who wanted it, who didn’t

Washington’s parting advice          Who worked for women’s rights? Abolition?…why not both?

ICYMI 11/2 & 11/3

Today we watch 2 episodes of Crash Course, “19th Century Reforms” and “Women of the 19th Century”. We completed and had (rather good) discussion of the guided questions. Remember, don’t just answer the questions; jot down brainstorming notes (based on video, reading, and discussions) regarding the topic of the questions.

#15 19th Century Reforms

#16 Women in the 19th Century

We also received the homework packet for Chapter 15 which is due 11/6 & 11/8 (A Day & B Day, respectively). E-mail me if you were not here to get it.

ICYMI – We will have our Unit 2 Test on 11/15 & 11/16

The test will cover Chapters 9 through 15.

I will be posting practice MC questions and Short Answer questions soon.

The “Blue Book” pages for review reading are 57 – 107 (stop at “John Tyler’s Presidency”), the timeline on page 114 through 134. Then pick up at 117 through 133.

If you do not have the “blue Book”, below you will find alternate review reading pages. It looks like a lot but its not really; its far less than re-reading all 7 of the chapters! These contain the same information, just from different sources; either one is good preparation.
