FRIDAY,OCTOBER 24,
"Space dust increases the Earth's weight by as much as 6 tons a day!"
WHAT DOES USURPATION MEAN AGAIN?  

Went to Plan B today...in class we watched America: The Story of Us: REVOLUTION...(many absent today)

HOMEWORK: 
1. Read the Declaration of Independence we handed out in class today and look carefully at the footnotes in the right column explaining the 27 grievances.  Do you see the "policies", "protests", and "violence" here?
2. Make certain your notebook is up to snuff...you should notes for the 15 events...with them in order and with interactive color!!!
3. Print/bring Digital History 14 to class tomorrow (along with the Declaration) ...This is a sophisticated "historiography"  on historical schools of thought. (Refer to Pagaent, p. 162..."Whose Revolution?" WE WILL DISCUSS THIS HISTORIOGRAPHY and apply it to the CONSTITUTION-BUILDING Phase of Revolution ahead!

4. For Monday...Read the remainder of Ch. 7... pp.146-163.  It covers the War.  We will glue things in our NB's and discuss the war (and how Bambi defeats Godzilla) on Monday. (IF YOU ARE A TRUE AP PERSON YOU COULD ALSO LOOK AT DIGITAL CH. 15...it is your call.) We are going to move forward a bit quickly for a bit.
