The link below is a Twain bio
Click on link, select "part two" on the top of the screen window, skip to 6:25 minutes in, hold cursor over upper right portion of screen window until strange cyrillic-looking word pops up, click on it for full screen...not the clearest copy, but its Ken Burns
a bit left to do, and I'm not sure anyone is ready to start this anyway, but...ppts will follow
Maybe a little long, starts with the painting, no guided notes (I hate "fill in the blank")
AmericanProgress.jpgJohn Gast--1872 "American Progress", great encapsulation of manifest destiny
Teacher resource only, nice explanation of Gast painting and "frontier" concept==
Epigrams at the beginning are for the warm-up

There are quite a few supplementary resources, some of which I can't get to you until Tuesday.

These are the first 3 laws--the Puritan model and the 2 shorter ones.
this is the Internal Security Act of 1950 (3 pages) & the Patriot Act (2 pages plus 2 with less important provisions)

This might be a little more info than you really need, but I think it could go quickly.
Below are the two clips I found on United Streaming, so hopefully no one will need to get a password. They are in order. Both of these are about 5 1/2 minutes long. You should just be able to hit the play button and click or double-click in the black space right above it to get it to play full screen. It plays in WindowsMediaPlayer. Neato!

Still looking for sample for Tuesday. Based on flow, it might make sense to use Wednesday's lesson first anyway.
More sophisticated than AC Writing Guide Thesis stuff (pp 23-24), 2nd two pages on organizing argument, from Purdue OWL
