Projects and DBQ Work

The Revolutionary War Soldier Project has been pushed back.  The new due date is November 13 at 11:59 PM!

Today in class we went through the next DBQ assignment.  This DBQ is about the American Revolution.  An organizer was handed out to help organize students' answers.  We are still having trouble getting the hang of the concept and so we are making sure students understand what to do when they complete their response.  This response is due next Monday at 11:59 PM.  The remainder of this week we will be fighting the Revolution and providing some background on the major events of the war.
