Students did test corrections for unit 3, then we read and discussed Lincoln’s First Inaugural Address. In particular, I asked students to identify what Lincoln said about the seizure of federal property, slavery, and the nature of the union. We then discussed what he said and why he may have said what he did.

Students also got assignments and due dates for unit 4.

The unit 4 review bank is now available at The Testing Center .

Students worked through the essay writing activities on identifying critical words and evaluating what the question is asking. The third part of the activity dealing with evaluating documents will be homework. Bring Part A of the handout completed to class Friday. Friday we will also do test corrections, and students will receive assignments and due dates for Unit 2.
