In-Class Work for 11/19

1) If you're reading the handout of Ehrhart, pick up a copy of page 161 to add to the packet for Monday. Make a note that this text is Passing Time, by W.D. Ehrhart in case you need to refer to it in your exit exam.

2) Print and turn in your annotated bibliography, even if it's incomplete. I'll respond to them during class. In the meantime, keep looking for more sources, reading, and taking notes on more sources if you need to.

3) Looking at Part II of the Essay outline, write a thesis paragraph that presents your answer to the central question, "Does the example of this country support the idea that the U.S. is an imperial power?" Post this thesis paragraph on your blog AND bring a hard copy to class on Monday. Note that for this essay, the thesis paragraph will not come right at the start.

4) Using your sources, begin to work on some supporting paragraphs (also in Part II).
