By the end of the day Friday, May 19th, you should be this far:
Can you answer the three questions we started with?
- “The Watergate Scandal confirmed that in the United States the democratic process worked.” To what extent do you agree with this statement?
- Examine the following claim: “During the Watergate Affair, investigative journalism saved American Democracy.”
- Analyse the political impact of the Watergate Affair in the United States.
Can you identify…
- Saturday Night Massacre
- Smoking Gun
- Nixon vs. U.S.
- Watergate Senate Committee
- Special Prosecutor
- Executive Privilege
- Articles of Impeachment
Who are the main players behind these events? What groups/roles are they associated with? I thought Gerald Ford was the Leader of the House of Representatives…?
Can you build a timeline/chronology of events with dates? Can you establish causation?
Have you worked to know the events? Or do you just know they are in your notes or on a website. You should have invested at least an hour today to learn the material. How will Mr. B know you’ve learned it? Should he give you a test? Ask you to build a timeline? Evaluate an argument? Hmmm…
