Classwork: Today we spent the majority of class discussing what we already know about US History and what we want to know more about. We also discussed our journal questions about values and ideals in America. The last 15 minutes of class was used to work on labeling your US map (states & capitals)
1. What are the core values of the United States? How are these values determined? How are they upheld?
2. How would you describe the ideals and values of your own generation specifically(Generation Y)? How do they differ from the generations before you (Generation X, Baby Boomers)?
3. How are American values reflected in the media (news, literature, film, tv, music)? Does the media portray an accurate view of American culture?
4. How do other countries view the US? Explain with detail.
