Well there is another snow day. Basically this break is now Thanksgiving break and literally as long as Christmas break. When we get back-we will review Jackson on Monday in fast and great detail. My expectation is that you will know it. On Tuesday we will begin two days going through the work you did on Chapter 11 in detail. Basically it is society, culture, and reform in the 1820-1860 era before the Civil War.
Your work is as follows:
Divide your notebook into SEVEN categories for the chapter.
- Utopian Communities
- Other reforms (alcohol, blind, deaf, prisons, etc)
Other reforms will be the largest category. Then place every person, group, movement, etc into the categories. READ THE CHAPTER! Here is flashcards if you need help http://www.proprofs.com/flashcards/story.php?title=ap-us-history-chapter-11-society-culture-reform
Once you have everything categorized then you need to KNOW them all. That is obviously the hard part! I will be checking the Jackson sheet and these notes for a grade on Monday. I expect all 52 that have Remind have it done. There will be a quiz on Wednesday or Thursday.
Contact me with any questions and enjoy your extended break!
Well, well, well, you got a snow day! I spent the morning shoveling out our cars and then gave in and bought a snowblower!
Anyway-If you could give me a little of your time I would appreciate it. We will be cramming two days into one tomorrow.
Here is what you need to write down/look over/know for tomorrow:
- Indian Removal Act/Cherokee Removal Act/Worcester vs Georgia/Trail of Tears
- Nullification Crisis
- Bank Veto and Nicholas Biddle
- Pet Banks and Species Circular
- Democrats and Whigs chart
- Elections of Van Buren in 1836 (and the Panic of 1837) and Harrison in 1840
I will either be calling on you vigorously or quizzing you on these items and the rest of Jackson tomorrow! If by some chance there is another snow day tomorrow-be prepared for a major Chapter 11 assignment!!!
THANK YOU! Enjoy your day and make it productive!
Well done amateur documentary of the Trail of Tears and Cherokee Removal.
This ten minute video looks at Jackson in more depth and is a critical portrayal.
This article discusses if Andrew Jackson was in fact the first “modern” President.
This was a depiction of President Jackson used by political opponents who felt he went too far in his power.
Watch from :30 to 5:00 for a summary of the Nationalism/Economic Growth Era of 1816-1848 in America.
Excellent 7 minute explanation of the Missouri Compromise and past DBQ essays and Free Response Essay questions from APUSH exams about the topic.
Remember, Henry Clay works the Compromise and Maine is admitted as a free state and Missouri as a slave state. All future territory in the west above the 36 30″ line of latitude will be free. It lasts 34 years but DOES NOT solve the problem for good.
A VERY brief explanation of 5th President James Monroe’s most important accomplishment-a statement that Europe was not to meddle with land in the Western Hemisphere.

- Turn in the corrections by the deadline set by Mr. Kufs
#6. D I guessed wrong. I found the answer in my book.
#6. New Answer: D- I got #6 wrong because I thought that the Puritans came to the New World to get rich. In reality, they came for religious freedom. The answer was found on page 25 of Amsco. (or from the website link or whatever)
