All ACT groups who have a graduating seniors in their group, must turn in their final notebook by the end of the day on Wednesday May 28. It is up to every single senior to make sure that their ACT work is completed and turned in. Do not count on group members to turn in the notebook. If I do not get it, that portion of your MP#6 grade will be recorded as a zero.
This Final Exam will concentrate on two historical political documents; The Declaration of Independence and 14th Amendment to the Constitution. You will be asked questions about the environment in which each was written. You will be required to interpret the meaning of each. And finally I expect you to provide personal real world awareness as to the lasting implications of each document. Grading of specific answers will take into account the depth and accuracy of your responses. You will be provided copies of each of the documents from which to work.
Each of the two sections below count 50% of your final exam grade.
- I – 100 pts / Declaration of Independence (1776)
- II – 100 pts / 14th Amendment to the Constitution (1868)
