Students finished the work page on the Quindlen article and then we discussed through the entire process and answers together, distributing fresh copies of the "Claim & Evidence Tricks" helper page. As always, see me for one-on-one help that will make the learning quicker and easier for you if the methods used so far in whole-class instruction haven't yet gotten you, personally, to where you want to be with your skills performances. ; ) Students then took E.Q. notes from Crash Course U.S. History: Civil War Part II. Reminder: HW reading and note-taking is due tomorrow; be sure to keep up with the reading so to be in line with your comprehension and being ready for the end-of-unit writing. Remember the speed-read strategies we discussed at the start of first semester and please see me in Advisory if you'd like any further, individualized help with this.

We took E.Q. notes from Crash Course U.S. History: Civil War Part II. We then moved on to using the story of John Brown as a case study in the abolition movement and the concept of historiography -- pick up a note page and a reading packet -- to be finished in class tomorrow.
