Hello all,

Now that we know more about the basic types of governments, we are going to study some of the philosophers that formed the foundation of the Founders’ ideas about government. Natural Rights. Social Contract. State of Nature. These are important ideas that shaped the ideas and attitudes of those who wrote and argued for our Constitution. Here is an introductory video:

These are the key terms we will be working with:

If you miss class, it is up to you to watch the video and complete the key terms. Not all terms are in the video. You can search for them on the internet.

Hello all,

Well, our first unit is behind us. We are now going to move on to the colonization of the present-day US. We are going to watch a short clip from the movie A New World.

While this will get us talking, don’t assume anything in this fictional depiction of first contact is completely accurate. It IS a movie after all. We will then watch another short video which will introduce us to the concepts we will be studying:

Finally, we will start on Apex 1.2.1. If you miss class, it is YOUR responsibility to complete Apex 1.2.1 and 1.2.2, which is the quiz. This will be due the following day 8/22/19, before class. I have added everyone to my US History Apex class. If you cannot log on, I can get you your username and reset your password, just let me know with an email. Not having your log-in information is NOT a valid excuse to not complete this exercise! You will get penalized.

US Government:

We didn’t do too badly on the quiz yesterday. If you did struggle, don’t worry, quizzes are only %20 of your grade. You will have ample time to make it up. We are now moving on to Apex lesson 1.2. We all need to bring our computers to class. If you are missing class, work on Apex 1.2 on your own. If your computer is not working, I will have an alternate lesson in the textbook.

US History:

I hope you all completed your study guides and are ready for the quiz! It is a mixture of multiple choice and short answer. There are four short answer questions, and you will need to choose three. We are then going to move on to the colonization of America. I’m sure we are all ready to move on. It has been a slow slog to start the year! We will start by watching this video:

Students should list these countries by order of when they first established colonies and give the year/location:

The Netherlands, England, Spain, France.

Then answer these questions:

In the year 1706, which country controlled the largest amount of territory in the present-day United States?

What happened to the map in early 1760’s, and why?

Which two countries controlled the most territory in the present-day United States in 1776, the year the United States declared independence from Great Britain?
