This week in class we read a piece of writing by Alexis de Tocqueville regarding American and its citizens in the 1840's. The article can be found on my blog. In addition to reading from de Tocqueville we investigated the idea of Manifest Destiny through the understanding of maps and pictures. You can find the pppt for the lesson on Manifest Destiny on my blog as well. Next week we will further look at Manifest Destiny, through some additional readings and compare the writing of de Tocqueville to Zinn and Johnson.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
