Schedule changes

Hi Everyone,

I have updated the reading/quiz schedule to reflect that we do not meet on Friday, October 3. My apologies for the confusion.

Please complete the following readings for our next meeting on Tuesday, October 7:

Give Me Liberty! Chapter 7 pg 263-281
Chapter 7 quiz due
Address to the People of New York by the Hon. John Jay and Elbridge Gerry's Reasons for Not Signing the Federal Constitution



  1. Just noticed this, but the links to the readings both seem to link to the same pdf, which is the address to the people of NY by John Jay. I am assuming they are supposed to be separate...

    1. Both documents are in one PDF. The line break in the link has been corrected.



Stay on topic. Your comment should engage with original post or respond to a previous comment

Provide evidence to support your point. Debate/conversation is encouraged, but if you wish to present a convincing argument you will have to support your claim. Make sure that the information you present can be verified and if you refer to an online source provide the link.

Use reputable sources. There is a lot of information available on the internet, but not all of it is trustworthy. Be certain that you can identify the author/creator, whether or not it is a commercial site, the bias of the site and/or its sponsors for any links you provide. Posts that contain links to or information from disreputable sources will be deleted and will not satisfy the assignment requirements.

Use your own words. If you wish to refer to an outside source, provide a link or citation information. Using someone else’s words as your own, or reposting material without identifying the original source/creator constitutes plagiarism.
