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.

The United States in 1819. The Missouri Compromise prohibited slavery in the unorganized territory of the Great Plains (dark green) and permitted it in Missouri (yellow) and the Arkansas Territory (lower blue area). (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

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.
