October 6

I gave you a handout on Private Enterprise and you took some notes on the synonyms for the various economic systems, and some notes on the law of supply and demand. We also started watching "The Commanding Heights", which we'll continue after the Thanksgiving long weekend. 

We continued working how to write a WRA II Essay in class today. We collectively started to write an essay together, which I will post on the wiki.

 You are writing your Unit 1 Final Exam on October 10th, please see the study guide below. 

Unit 1 Final Exam will be Tuesday, October 10th. The format for the exam is entirely multiple choice. It will consist of 55 multiple choice questions60-65% of the questions will be "source-based" questions, while the remainder will be simply knowledge and comprehension style questions. In other words, the source-based questions will use political cartoons, timelines, a chart or diagram, a graph, a reading, a photo or a map, and you will have answer questions related to that source. The source-based questions will be difficult to prepare for. You must have a firm grasp of the concepts and key terms that were introduced in Unit 1, because that will allow you to apply the knowledge that you have to answer the multiple choice questions.

Please study your key terms from Chapters 1-5, and the topics covered in that unit.
