Review for Midterm

Here is the review sheet for the mid-term. I have also uploaded the lecture PowerPoints for each chapter in the right-hand column under “Course Documents.” I will keep these up until Monday morning. Also, here is a link for the Chapter 6 Review Sheet,which might be helpful for the Midterm.

By the way, here is a link to an interesting piece from the BBC about a recent debate over the legality of the Declaration of Independence. Check out the video–it might give you some useful ideas!

Good luck studying for the midterm, and drop me a line if any questions come up.
