                         what did they do with the lands they conquered, and how were they settled). Focus on
                         categories, such as political, economic, and social (family structure, gender roles, religion).

                         would be the importance of those differences, and the conclusion restates the thesis and

* All assignments listed below are due on the day they are listed.
Oct 1 (A):            Read pages 164-189, and pages A32 - A43. The emphasis of your homework is to review
                      Articles I, II, and III and the First 10 Amendments; then briefly explain how the Constitution limits
                      Federal government power and why the Bill of Rights" were added (i.e. not part of the original
                      Constitution). Furthermore, what is the importance of the 9th and 10th Amendments?

Oct 5 (A):            Read pp. 190-210. Create a Venn Diagram comparing and contrasting Hamilton and the Federalist
                      policies, and Jefferson and the Democratic-Republican policies (use the chart on page 208), listing
                      at least 5 (pick whichever you think are most important) for each side, and then think of 3 common
                      features of both (hint: they both supported the Constitution).

Oct 10 (A):           Read pages 211-232; write an outline to answer DBQ 3, pages A108 - A109. Use all 5 documents,
                      and cite specific words or 1-2 sentences per document (using "Doc A", etc.) to support your
                      thesis. Try to look for the "point of view" of the author, and "group" the documents into categories.

Oct 15 (A):           Read pages 233-255; create a 1-2 page study sheet for Chapters 9-12, being sure to incorporate
                      the Hartford Convention, the War of 1812, "The American System", The Era of Good Feelings, the

Oct 19 (A):           Read pages 256-284; examine Jackson's "Spoils System," the "Tariff of Abominations," "The
                      Trail of Tears," The Bank War, and "What Was Jacksonian Democracy" on pages 285-6, and
                      argue whether Jackson deserves to be on our $20 bill.

Oct 23 (A):           Read pages 287-318; write an essay explaining which played a greater role in the industrialization
                      of America - the immigration of German and Irish immigrants in the first half of the 19th Century,
                      or manufacturing, technical innovations, and "Clinton's Ditch."
Oct 25 (A):           Read pages 320-344; create a 1-2 page study sheet for Chapters 13-15, including the role of religion,
                      education, women's rights, and literature in Ch 15. These will be the first 15 Q's on the Nov 15 test.

Oct 29 (A):              Read pages 348-370; analyze "What was the true nature of slavery?" on page 369, and argue which
                         approach provides the best overall view of the nature / cause of slavery.

Oct 31 (A):              Read pages 371-389; write an essay describing the causes and effects of the Mexican-American
                         War.

Nov 2 (A):               Read pages 390-408; explain why the Missouri Compromise, the Compromise of 1850, and the
                         Kansas-Nebraska Act failed to resolve the Slavery issue.

Nov 9 (A):               Read pages 409-433; create a 1-2 page study sheet for Chapters 16-19. Be sure to include
                         Harriet Beecher Stowe, John Brown and "Bleeding Kansas", Dred Scott, the Crash of 1857,
                         the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, and the impact of the 1860 election from Ch 19 in your notes.

Nov 15-19:               Although Thanksgiving is a homework free zone, this is an A-day and is technically not your
                         first day back. Also, you had both the weekend of Nov 17/18 and in-class time to work on the
                         projects. It should not be necessary to work over Thanksgiving. If there is a problem, please
                         let me know before Thanksgiving break and I will accommodate you.

Nov 28 - 30:             Students will present on selected topics that serve as a review (colonial period to 1860).
                         The grading rubric and topic list will be provided by November 13.

* All assignments listed below are due on the day they are listed.

Dec 4 (A):               Read pages 434-452; military planners often use the acronym "DIME" to guage relative military
                         power. "D" stands for diplomacy, or the number of allies; "I" stands for information, and is viewed
                         broadly in terms of information, including communications systems (like telegraph systems),
                         command and control (including military leadership) and intelligence; and "E" stands for economic
                         power and industrial production. Examine each of these elements, and argue where the North had
                         an advantage, and where the South had an advantage.

Dec 6 (A):               Read pages 453-478; General Winfield Scott's plan for defeating the South was nicknamed the
                         "Anaconda" plan, which is visualized on the map on page 457 (surround the South and slowly
                         suffocate it); while the South tried to win a great strategic victory in battle that would end the war,
                         such as was hoped would occur at Gettysburg. Explain the advantages and disadvantages to both
                         strategies.

Dec 10 (A):              Read pages 479-501; create a 1-2 page study guide for Chapters 20-22, being sure to include the pros
                         and cons of "Reconstruction," and the impact it had on the South (for both Blacks and Whites).
                         Note: The test will emphasize Chapters 20-22, but will include review questions from the previous
                         chapters (hence - Semester Review). Use the study guides you have created to help you prepare
                         for this exam.

Jan 4 (A):               Read pages 502-529; compare and contrast the effects of "Jim Crow" laws on Blacks and poor
                         Whites (pp. 512-513) with the class conflicts and ethnic conflicts (pp. 514-515) elsewhere in the
                         country (see also, "The Drumbeat of Discontent," pp. 523-525). How are they related / different?
