Today you received the chapter 10 packet for your perusal. Be sure to review the most important content of chapter 10 as outlined there. That content will be on the unit exam.
Chapter 11 was a broadening of some prior knowledge for many of you, but the key to understanding the coming war will be to understand the power of “King Cotton” on the economies of the South and the North. Be prepared to explore the peculiar institution of American slavery in the next class. The brief economics lesson on King Cotton will also help to solidify your understanding of life in antebellum South.
The end of this unit will include your first DBQ on slavery and a 4 way debate over slavery, so keep up on your reading and review the DBQ tips in your review book!
