Those of you testing on Monday–Good Luck– APUSH: Questions–for Model UN students to make sure they can answer and other students. I will post another set for the weekend on a few other obscure things that might come up. What effect did Watergate have on the American people in terms of the level of trust they had for government and politicians?In what war was the domino theory used most as a justification for it? Review–what industry is associated with the Bessemer process?Why was the TVA created during the 1930’s? What book did Betty Friedan write during the 1950’s that pushed for gender equality that was one of the intellectual roots of the “women’s liberation movement”? Review from earlier in the year–what is the actual name of “Obamacare”? What was the importance of the Dawes Severalty Act of 1887 in terms of the Indians–did it help or hurt? Why was the main policy of the U.S. assimilation of Indians in the 19th century after we defeated them? What names are associated with the invasion that liberated northern France starting on June 6, 1944? What similarities are there between the “Red Scare” of the 1920’s and “McCarthyism”? Know your presidents during the Cold War and the policies associated with them. One thing we did not cover was the Cuban Missile crisis–October 1962–Soviet Union puts missiles in Cuba, U.S. finds out. President Kennedy has to decide what to do and we almost go to war but he decides to accept a “back door” communication from Nikita Kruschev and we agree to remove our missiles from Turkey in a year and they agree to take the missiles out of Cuba. Be sure you could recognize this on a map and recognize that the “Bay of Pigs” failed invasion was Cubans and American advisors trying to recapture their homeland. This is prior to the crisis.

The principal has approved this action and fee for each which will belong to the student and used in class assignments and test prep. These are prep sources only available to teachers and not sold to individuals. The AP European workbook will cost $20 The AP United States workbook will cost $26 Please make checks payable to Haynes Academy. A new twist this year is that parents are encouraged to write one check for all subjects at the beginning of the year. Supplies for both classes include the following: a binder of one and a half inches to2 inches. (students receive many handouts and a binder of one inch does not work-they break over time), 8 dividers for AP Euro, and 12 dividers for AP United States History, BLACK pens, a pencil for scantrons, a pack of 3×5 notecards, a composition book–green for Euro and black or blue for APUSH. Thank you for your support this year and I look forward to meeting you soon. Mrs. Becker
