Updated 9/16/18

It's hard to believe we have almost made it halfway through the first grading period! We have had many homework assignments, one online quiz, a test, and we will be finishing up your first DBQ this week. How is everyone doing? Please see me as soon as possible if you have any questions or concerns. 

You will need your textbook this week (9/17 - 9/21).

Since we are out of school tomorrow (Monday, 9/17), I thought I would post an extra credit opportunity. This will be worth 10 points (one whole letter grade) on our first test. 

First, you will need to read this article published in the Atlantic a couple years ago: 
The Coddling of the American Mind
Next, you will need to write a one paragraph summary of the article and an additional one paragraph reaction. Do you agree or disagree with the author's claim? Explain why in your response. 

Hope to see everyone Tuesday!!
