Even though we will not have school on Monday, January 10, I would like to remind you to read the Epic Fails sheet for Tuesday. I would also like you to read another handout that I have attached to the Blog that will help you for your Civil War Contributing Factors paper. This is not an assignment, just wanted to let you know have it. If you are interested in reading it...Go to History Handouts, scroll down, and check out "Summary of 1840--1860." Please read the section about "Texas and Oregon" and "Mexico and More", for we will discuss these issues this week. The handout is an EXCELLENT resource for your Contributing Factors paper too! Stay warm and Be Good!
