American Government 2/5

In Class - Continue discussion/lecture on the views of slavery and our founding of this nation. This is leading us up to the Civil Rights Movement, which we will begin on Tuesday. These discussions/lectures will be beneficial and lead us into our first major project, which will also be assigned next Tuesday in class. Key topics of discussion: Constitutinal Amendments 13, 14, and 15 (dealing with slavery), freedom of the slaves and introduction of the Jim Crow South, important abolitionists, KKK.

Homework - Continue to watch the news.

Check out these links that cater to our class discussions:
