    The Cuban Missile Crisis was one of the most tense monments in United States History. However, most did not find out how tense this situation with the Soviet Union actually was until after it was over. I want you to check out this timeline, or any other Cuban Missile Crisis site you choose. Create a Twitter account for President John F. Kennedy and post ten "tweets" from him during this crisis.

    This week we listened to some music that was inspired by the Vietnam War era. I want you to choose a song from the modern day, and pick one verse from that song that deals with a current issue. In your blog post, quote the lyrics first, then provide commentary about what those lyrics mean and how they are similar to songs from the Vietnam era. Somewhere in the post, be sure to include the song title and artist that you chose.

    The Vietnam War was one of the most "in our faces" conflicts that the people of the United States had ever seen. We are fortunate that we do not need to only rely on textbooks to get our history of this combat operation. To complete this post, write five quality questions and use them to interview someone alive during the Vietname War. Publish both your questions and your interviewees responses to your blog.
    Today, we are used to the news media treating stories of war with support. However, this may not have always been the case. The NY Times maintains this site, which details some news stories from the war. Check them out and discuss in a blog post, the differences between how the media covers the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq - with how they covered Vietnam.

    We recently discussed the events that took place at Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. Fifty years after those events, there is still a civil rights struggle going on; one example of this took place in Jena, Louisiana. Read the NY Times article "Louisiana Protest Echoes the Civil Rights Era". In a blog post, discuss your reaction to the Jena article and also discuss how the Jena and Little Rock incidents are similar. Be sure to answer both parts of the question for full credit.
    Gain an understanding for the term meritocracy. The ideology that anyone who works hard enough can acheive the American Dream has been touted by many organizations throughout American history. Evaluate whether or not you believe that this ideology is true, based on the testing results of the third graders in A Class Divided, where the students perform better on the phonics task when they are in the group labeled superior than when those same students are in the group designated as inferior.

    be talking a lot about MLK and Malcolm X in class. Many would argue that these men were vastly different in their methodology.Yet others would argue that there were no differences between the two. Check out this doc, which provides you with quotes from both men. Using what we discuss in class and also what you infer from the doc/quotes, discuss in a blog post whose methodology was more effective in accomplishing goals setposted by the Civil Rights Movement.
    We have been discussing educational opportunity a lot in class. Use the College Education Survey doc, found here, to complete a survey about race, high school and college graduation. Once your survey is complete, post your results to your blog with commentary about what you can infer from your results. Think about the educational opportunity discussions that we held in class.
    This week you worked on your "I Am" poems in class with collaborative groups. You may post your final draft of your groups poem to your blog. This will count for one of your four posts for this two week session.
    Post your Topic.11 Concept Guide to your blog. This must be posted prior to the Topic.11 Formative Assessment in order to receive credit for your post.
