I was out of town on Friday and this weekend so I didn’t get to see the students’ tests until today. I have a presentation to make to the Board of Education tonight and won’t finish grading their tests until tomorrow.
Today we had shortened classes because of an assembly. After I collected students’ DBQs on the Growth of Slavery, they watched two brief videos: The Presidency of James K. Polk and Manifest Destiny. When the students finished, we spent a few minutes analyzing John Gast’s painting, American Progress. (Here’s the PowerPoint: Breaking Down Joh Gast’s American Progress, 1872. Here’s the student fill-in-the-blank sheet: APUSH Review- Breaking Down John Gast’s American Progress, 1872). We were able to answer the HIPP questions just as the bell rang. I will spend more time on this tomorrow before reviewing the Mexican-American War.
HW for tonight: Mexican-American War V.G.
HW for Monday, November 27, 2017: Chapter 13 Outline
Have a great night!
