The election is in a month! Time to start reading up. UC Berkeley Library partners with several other institutions to explain the propositions and to gather a table of endorsements. Study it, then write what you have learned about specific propositions. http://californiachoices.org/ballot-endorsements-november-4-2014

homework this week due

I will accept late homework up to a week after the due date; if you have extenuating circumstances, let's talk.

Attention all procrastinators and time-management-challenged students! Here are some resources for you!

Don't miss class! My History 2 classes are in SS 210, MW at 12:50 and TTh at 2:30. So you can come to the OTHER class if you miss yours, and if not see me ASAP when you return to school to go over what you missed and clarify homework expectations. We do a lot every day you're gone, so get the notes from a new or used friend?

Please note that I put next week's HW on this page on Weds. so if you are in the TTh class, or running late, you may need to look at last week's--note DATES!

Due Nov. 5-6

1. Preliminary interview done, form filled out and turned in. We will go over this in class, but if you miss the form is on my research page, and get busy!

2. I won't make you read two long oral histories, but I do want you to look at those offered on this UCB Oral History page http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/ROHO/projects/rosie/ that concerns the US homefront during WWII, then pick TWO oral histories that seem to both deal with a theme (any theme) you choose. Find five more quotes, and do the same thing we did last week--put them in some kind of order, then write what you need to write to lead smoothly and logically from one to the next.

3. Concept check on Weds.-Thursday on WWII and all we have read/studied/discussed about it.
