Weekly Syllabus

Week of Monday, October 20 through Friday, October 24

This week we will finish up our look at the Washington and Adams Administrations and follow America in to the 19th century. If you keep up with the reading you will be at least one day ahead of class, so you should be fully prepared to discuss the material. Remember that we will have our next test at some point next week (probably closer to the end than the middle).  Conference if you have questions!
