Homework for 11/28-TUESDAY

Posted in Uncategorized on November 27, 2017 by mrkufs

On Tuesday we will continue 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:

Your notebook should be divided into SEVEN categories for the chapter.

  • Religion
  • Utopian Communities
  • Literature
  • Other reforms (alcohol, blind, deaf, prisons, etc)
  • Education
  • Women
  • Anti-Slavery

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!  There will be a quiz on Wednesday or Thursday.
