Review

Monday, May 7th, 2012

So here is a post for review.  Start by naming/explaining the above cartoon.  Second by asking any, any question that comes to mind about the IB test and history.  I will keep an eye on the comments section and respond to questions there so you’ll have to keep coming back.

Come on.  You can do it!  Ask a question!

Clinton

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

I’m not sure if one chapter, devoted only to foreign policy, and written only after his first term, is enough to, “assess Bill Clinton’s Presidency,”, (last year’s test question) in fact I’m pretty sure its not.  But it is what we have. 

B day kids I’m see you tomorrow so be ready for a quiz on this.  A day kids I think we’re past our opportunity.  I will see all of you tomorrow for review during the testing time, and from there on out we will review at every opportunity (including my house on Saturday).

So Clinton.  Ambrose’s last words?  “genuine progress”.  Certainly there were stumbles along the way.  Criticism of “Band-aid” and “putting out fires”, in other words having no clear guide to USFP plagued Clinton throughout his years.  He had particular trouble in Bosnia, Somalia but then some triumphs in places like Ireland. 

So what do you think?  Clinton’s FP in at least hist first term? Good?  Bad?  Ugly? 

and “Why?”
