We discussed Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell’s proclamation naming April 2010 “Confederate History Month.”

Afterward, students took the chapter 40 vocab quiz, and then worked on a compare/contrast organizer for the Fair Deal, New Frontier, and Great Society.

There will be a special extra credit opportunity available Monday.  Check back then for details.
