Let's start by talking about last night's HOMEWORKDiversity & Discrimination (21.1) pgs 545-549
Define these terms:
1a) reservation

1b) refugee

Answer these questions:

2a) How has the ethnic composition of the nation changed since it was created in 1789? (545-546)

2b) Why are women an unusual group among those who have faced discrimination (549)

Then, we'll talk about the upcoming assessment. You'll be choosing one amendment from the Bill of Rights as your focus (or, depending on the amendment, just a part of it) that you want to investigate, learn more about, and understand. It will require a bit more research than our past assessments, so you'll need to get a good start on it soon. For more details, take a look at the assessment page. Due May 3rd.
