Finished Video/Gilded Age Notes
Today's class was spent finishing the video from last week and continuing the Gilded Age Notes. Remember that the chapter is to be finished by tomorrow.
Today's class was spent discussing the Reconstruction article, revisiting POV, and then we started notes on the Gilded Age, which is part of Period 6 (1865-1898). I've included a copy of the PowerPoint we started today and a PDF of the Reconstruction DBQ below.
Also, instead of having two short answer questions tomorrow, we will have a very short (8 questions) stimulus based multiple choice quiz tomorrow over Reconstruction.
Today's class was spent working on document analysis from a prior DBQ on Reconstruction. Emphasis was placed on practicing blind analysis, and developing one of the four types of analysis (POV, historical context, purpose or audience).
Remember that the article needs to be finished by tomorrow.

Pass Back, Type 2's, Civil War
At the beginning of class, all graded papers were handed back. Everything has been graded, make sure you make up needed assignments if you were gone at all the week before break.
After two Type 2's over the reading from break, students made a chart in their notes comparing the mobilization efforts of the North and South at the outset of the Civil War. We then watched the Lincoln's segment from The Presidents video series for an overview of the time period.
