I handed essay tests back in class. If you haven’t taken the test, please arrange a time to do so before the end of this week.
After discussing the test, we talked about the difference between perspective and fact, citing these four movie clips as examples of how perspective can influence our knowledge of facts.

We then talked about the South and the West, incorporating the documents from B #2-3. I also posed this question in all classes: “What is the difference between being educated and being influenced?”
Collaborative project later this week. Good luck!
