A block: due March 27-31

Due Tuesday 3/28:  notes on pages 209-213; alternatively, you may (neatly) graph--just as you would in math!--American morale throughout the war.  To do so, use a blank 8 x 11" piece of paper and create a graph, with "date and event" on the x axis and morale on the y axis.  Choose ten events from the chapter and plot a data point for each event that, based on your best judgment and information from the reading, reflects American morale at that particular point in the war.  You need a brief (3-4 bullet point) summary of each even that should make it clear why morale was high/medium/low as as result of that event.

Due Thursday 3/30: notes on p. 216-225 (read for the big picture - only record 1-3 supporting details per section)

Due Friday 3/31: notes on 225-233

Extra credit:  due by Friday 3/31
Create a political cartoon about Jefferson's presidency that reflects an event or idea that has not been well represented in class to this point.  It may be drawn or digitally created (cite sources for images you use), must be insightful, visually appealing (use color, use space well, be neat) and explained in 2-4 well composed, grammatically correct sentences on the reverse of the image.  Be prepared to share briefly in class.  Worth up to 5 extra points for term 3.
