Students took the chapter 15, 16 vocab quiz, and then we continued with unit 3 presentations.  I expect to have 5-6 more presentations on Monday.  The worksheet over President Polk’s request to Congress for a declaration of war against Mexico will also be due.

We briefly discussed the changing perceptions of democracy, who it should involve and who it should benefit.  Students then began their unit 3 presentations.  Expect to do 4-5 more on Friday following the chapter 15 & 16 vocab quiz.
