Upcoming assignment notice and instructions

Directly below this post is an essay that you need to have read by next Wednesday– “The Significance of the Frontier in American History.” You can start reading it below- it has some hyperlinks I put in it to explain some terms.

HOWEVER, I have made copies for everyone and placed them outside my door. The copies I made include questions to help you understand the reading– a form of annotation. I would strongly urge you to pick up one of my copies before you leave for your extended weekend. I will expect you to have completely read and understood the reading by next Wednesday, when we will have a seminar over the reading and have a quiz over it. The questions will be a required assignment, due on Wednesday at the start of class.

Here are some links to help you understand the reading:
