pulp.: Final proofreading of the book. Thanks to everyone for your hard work and eagle(ish) eyes.

  1. The chapters you read in Founding Brothers, including the reason the Constitution was drafted and what was left out of it.
  2. This handout: Presidents list by era 2016 with questions
  3. Wednesday’s blog entry, with the nine terms.

Remember: 4 + 7 + 9 = 20.

Congrats to What the Hell. Pizza party to follow.


Middle School: “Escape Clause,” “Rumpelstiltskin” and Deal with the Devil stories.
