I covered some key concepts today in class (if you missed class today, get the notes from a classmate), including first past the post (FPTP), simple plurality, single member constituency, single vote, and proportional representation (PR). We re-cast the 2011 Canadian federal election to reflect what the results might have been if Canada employed PR. You then got your Unit 2 WRA II essay question sheet today. You'll be writing the Unit 2 WRA II Essay on Thursday, November 27th in the Blenheim Room and breakout room. Both classes are working with Ronald Reagan quotes, funny how that worked out. I also did a homework check on your Chapter 10 Key Terms and Questions.

We started a PowerPoint lecture on "American Expansionism" that I will finish off tomorrow. We'll do a closer examination of the Mexican-American War tomorrow. We should be able to finish off all of the content of our History of the Americas by Friday, and then you will be writing a Paper 3 on Monday. We'll start looking at Authoritarian and Single-Party States on Tuesday of next week.
