Responsible Fiscal Support Even With Low Credit Rating Via Online - 2 views

  •  
    The approach of low credit payday loans has set up new terms and conditions for the financial influenced individuals. Presently, the borrowers don't need to put a great deal of endeavors in getting the store over the span of the crisis in light of the fact that there are times when the negative credit holders are denied of the financial offer assistance. Be that as it may, now, it is not happening on the grounds that with the assistance of previously mentioned advances, the candidates can obtain the store regardless of having downsides.

Pilgrims and Progress: How Magazines Made Thanksgiving - 3 views

  •  
    This academically rigorous article may be beyond even the highest functioning AP US History students. But all teachers will find this article aiming a question directly at their curriculum - Do you teach a myth as a cultural affirmation? The essay argues that "traveling home to turkey and all the trimmings was "invented", not in 17th century Massachusetts, but in 19th century Philadelphia in the pages of the nation's most widely circulated magazines and in respond to the changing American scene. Two hundred years after the Pilgrims' quit commemorations, Thanksgiving developed a uniform national profile, impelled by its promoters ideas about republican identity, ideas diffused by a publishing industry with increasingly national reach"

We talk a lot about civic education. Here's how to get kids really engaged in it. - The... - 3 views

    "We talk a lot about civic education, usually about how little of it too many students get in school. In this charged election season, the subject has rarely, if ever, been more relevant. But here's a different kind of discussion: how kids are actually being engaged in it. Below are several examples that could be used in any school.

    All of the authors are working in Illinois, where a law was recently passed requiring high schools to provide a semester-long civics course that includes community action of some kind. It says, "Civics course content shall focus on government institutions, the discussion of current and controversial issues, service learning, and simulations of the democratic process." But what they say can apply across the country."

Orson Welles' War of the Worlds panic myth: The infamous radio broadcast did not cause ... - 5 views

  •  
    Great lesson for WWII in US History class - set the context of Munich appeasement and fear of world war, then tell the story of the broadcast and the panic. Students job? - find out if reports of the panic were valid - how would you check? End with the media fight between radio and newspapers. What are implications for the internet?

    Related material can also be found at the National Archives collection of letters written to the FCC after the broadcast (https://www.archives.gov/publications/prologue/2003/fall/war-of-worlds.html). In this National Archive articles it states that "Of the 1,770 people who wrote to the main CBS station about the broadcast, 1,086 were complimentary. In addition, 91 percent of the letters received by the Mercury Theatre staff were positive. And roughly 40 percent of the letters sent to the FCC were supportive of the broadcast."

    This video was very interesting, enjoyable and truthful. I have added it to http://www.textbooksfree.org/Quick%20Notes%20History.htm. Slave trade has been around a long time. It replaced the practice of killing or eating those who lost in battle. Weren't most American slaves or their ancestors first enslaved by Africans who lost in battle to other Africans?
