Week of Monday, September 15 through Friday, September 19
This week we will finish up our look at
the events and issues that led to the
Revolutionary War, and begin studying the
Revolution itself, along with a close look at the
Declaration of Independence, the foundational
document of the United States, and a model of
Enlightenment-era political theory.
Please note that our first test will take
place on the first T Day after we complete Chapter
6. If everything goes as planned, that will
be next Thursday, September 25. It will cover
material from Chapters 4,5 and 6 (plus the pages
we read in Chapter 3). You may want to begin
conferencing if you have questions about what
we've been studying.
