The Civil Rights Movement

On Thursday we will have a guest teacher…Mr. Terrell Kemp. He will be teaching the Civil Rights movement to all of the classes I have tomorrow. This material will show up on the exam, so you will need to give Mr. Kemp your full attention. Since Mr. Kemp is planning on being a teacher, I am giving him the opportunity to teach for a day. I want you all to be respectful and attentive to him.

Here are the notes he provided for his lesson: Civil Rights Notes (Kemp)

The Vietnam War Ends…

Hello Sophomores,

By the end of this week we will be done with the Vietnam War and ready to move on to your Sixties Music Projects. I hope those are coming along well.

Here is the last Guided Reading for Chapter 29 on the Vietnam War. As you go through this, you will learn about the War under Richard Nixon (who became President after Lyndon B. Johnson didn’t seek a second term) and how the war eventually ended. You will also learn about the legacy the war had on different people and our nation. Here is the Guided Reading: Ch. 29.Sec 4 GR (Vietnam War Ends) (due on Thursday night on SpringBoard).

Remember your test will be this Friday. It will cover Chapter 27 (Kennedy Era), the JFK Assassination and Chapter 29 (Vietnam War).

For those going to Cedar Point, remember the final payment is due on May 7.

Vietnam War PowerPoint and Video

Here is the PowerPoint presentation for the lessons on the origins of the Vietnam War: Vietnam War PP

Please be familiar with the start of the war leading up to Johnson. You should know who the Vietcong were, Kennedy’s actions and ideas about Vietnam, Johnson’s perspective, and the Gulf of Tonkin incident and resolution.

I filmed the 9th period class today. Unfortunately there was a problem in the uploading and it only uploaded 10 minutes of the 38 minute  lesson. So you can see those 10 minutes here:   (digitally filming and archiving classes is my latest hairbrained scheme to integrate technology into our school and classroom).

Remember the Chapter 29 Introduction is due tonight on SpringBoard.
