Mr. O, would you be so kind as to upload assignment due dates to the calender. It really helps me when I confuse assignments or dates. :)

Mr. O said...

I just glanced at Facebook (Mr. O page). If someone would just post the question here, we could could put an end to the chaos over there. Kissinger chapter 28 on Wednesday and Gaddis chapter 4 on Friday.

Hey! hope your weekend is fantastic! I was wondering about the quiz will it cover what is on the "Key Events From Detente" sheet? And will it have stuff from China or is it just Vietnam?

Mr. O said...

Hi Ashley,

The Quiz is on Vietnam, not Nixon and China or detente. If you didn't pick up a key events sheet, you can on Monday.

Ashley said...

Thanks Mr. O!

I'm having a bit of trouble with the orange sheet tonight. Really, it seems like the goals of both the US and USSR was to avoid another missile crisis situation. Is this basically the right idea for the early treaties (1963-1972)?

Josh said...

Justin. Most treaties are established with mutual goals.

Mr. O said...


In some cases that was true, but in other cases, one side is after a particular goal. For example, at Helsinki the critical issue for the U.S.was human rights while the Soviets were more concerned about territorial rights.

Justin said...

When the questions say "the Cold War," do we assume that in this context it means up through the 70's, or go from beginning to the very end?

Justin said...

when analyzing the "successes and failures of Nixon's and Carter's foreign policy," does it make sense to do a two bucket structure (successes and failures), or would it be more efficient to look at each administration seperately in two buckets?

Mr. O said...

Either one of those would be fine. The other possibility is to look for themes and do a running commentary.

Ashley said...

Do we take notes on Chapter 6 too? Or just read it?

Why did WW1 influence Nicholas' rise to power other than the large drafts of men?

Josh said...

You coordinated the quiz to coincide with the death of hu yaobang didn't you?

Josh said...

Also how many points will this quiz be? I think I am coming up short on the number of fair game snippets at 37.

Is it ok to use a figure only in the Conclusion, but still include it in the Summary of Evidence?
