Today we turned in our Fall Papers before finishing our 1920s brackets.
You have no homework over break!
Today was your last in-class work period for the fall paper, which is due on Tuesday.
Today we talked about some key aspects of your paper.
Then we peer reviewed rough drafts!
Today we talked about the clash between modern and traditional in the 1920s. We talked about issues with urbanization, fundamentalists, and the new liberties experienced by American women. We looked at traditionalists and how flappers created a new standard of social life for young women in the city.
Then we worked on our rough drafts, which are due in class tomorrow. You need a hard copy in class and a digital copy on TurnItIn.com.
Today we (briefly) talked about World War 1.
Your outline is due to TurnItIn.com tonight!
Today we talked about the Progressive Era Presidents! We looked at Teddy Roosevelt and his accomplishments, talked about imperialism, and saw what he did after his first two terms. We looked at Taft, talked about opossums, and ended with Teddy Roosevelt and Taft both losing the election of 1912 to Wilson.
Your homework is to work on your outline and research form, which are due Monday night on Turn It In.
