Paper 2 (due Tuesday, 9/24)

Just wanted to remind you all that the next response paper is due before you come to class on Tuesday. Make sure you address the content of the sources you choose but also the context that is important for understanding them. Who is writing this? Who is the audience? What else is going on at the time? etc. And, make sure you include your ideas not just about the primary sources individually but also how they relate to one another.

Like the last paper, please use footnotes, double space, and include introduction and conclusion paragraphs. Email me with any questions.

Reminder: Thursday 9/12

Just a reminder, class is cancelled this Thursday, September 12. However, your response papers are still due via by 12pm that day. Please let me know if you have any other questions about you papers. We will discuss them and the Breen article along with the other assigned readings on the French and Indian War next week.

Also, since we talked a lot about slavery today, enjoy this funny and thoughtful video by a woman who worked as a historical re-enactor portraying a slave at George Washington’s home.

See you next Tuesday.
