Game Two: Team Standings

Another great game, teams! And I do hope you found it helpful in preparing for the midterm. I am certain you will all do very well.

Bull Moose Party 95 Cumulative: 195

Team Connery 95 Cumulative: 170

And I hope you enjoyed the visit from Dr. Martin, and that you found her discussion about an important, constantly shifting cycle in U.S. history -- citizens' faith in government -- useful in understanding a significant theme of the different periods we have studied to this point -- Reconstruction, the Gilded Age, the Progressive Era, World War I, the 1920s, the Great Depression, and the New Deal. Can you see how that type of model could be applied to other topics or themes -- civil rights, perhaps? Or some other cycle that you think is particularly compelling?

I'll probably post some final thoughts/tips about the midterm later this week.

Look for the Web Assignments by tomorrow afternoon. They will be due by Saturday night.

See you Saturday morning at 11:30 at the steps of Dallas Hall.
