AP Gov 1/26/12 and 1/27/12
On Thursday students watched Obama's State of the Union Address, taking notes. Students watched for what he said and what he was really saying. Available at: State of the Union Address
Today students received a Jimmy Carter packet to prepare for Tuesday's speech. This packet is to be read interactively by Tuesday for a Socratic Seminar. For those of you not here, here are links to the contents:
♦Jimmy Carter's Post-Presidency
♦Carter's Greatest Legacy: The Camp David Negotiations
♦The Iranian Hostage Crisis
♦The Malaise Speech
♦Interview with Former President Jimmy Carter
I will post a discussion agenda later this weekend (say Sunday afternoon or evening).
Migraine all weekend--agenda I'll give you tomorrow hopefully.
We then watched Part I of the PBS Jimmy Carter film, from The American Experience. This is not on line, so if you missed class, I'll lend you the film next week to make up.
