2.The rest of the semester's assignments on Frederick Douglass will be the following SIX chapters--these will be on the final exam! I include them by name rather than number, as the numbering is confusing given different editions of the book: One Hundred Conventions, Increasing Demands of the Slave Power, The Beginning of the End, Secession and War, Hope for the Nation, and Vast Changes. As before, make notes that include:

a. What happened in each chapter

b. How this affected Frederick Douglass

c. What we learn of the times-- the Civil War and Reconstruction, its aftermath

3. Check ouf the final exam study guide given in class and linked here. Start making notes in a methodical war so you have some sheets of notes to study and reduce to outlines.

If you have not done all the video outlines or want to re-do, that's fine until we pass each stage dealt with. In other words, I won't accept any done after the phase of the research project that they have to do with, as they logically did not help you as intended. At this point, Nov. 15, I'll only still take the last two! They are linked on the past HW page.
