Today, class time was spent discussing Frederick Jackson Turner's Frontier Thesis and students got to work on next week's DBQ, spending 20 minutes practicing the process of blind document analysis. I've included a link below that has the visual in Document 5 in more detail.
Remember, the article is to be read by Thursday and we will discuss it in class.

Get a good night of studying in and stay warm!
Today in class we discussed the Civil War using the questions included below. Also included is the study guide for the Chapter 14/15 test which has been moved from Tuesday to Wednesday due to the snow days.
Wow, a double snow day, and maybe headed towards a triple. We don't have the luxury though of pushing our schedule back. So add the next five pages of Chapter 15 to your assigned readings. And if we have tomorrow off, have the chapter finished by Monday. Stay warm and stay safe!
Class time was spent today analyzing the different views on the Union and secession by reading/discussing both South Carolina's justification for secession and Lincoln's first inaugural.
