How has my week gone in AP US history?

Yep. That about covers it.

Hm, how about football? ... McClellan was all defense and no offense? At Gettysburg, Robert E. Lee went long but was intercepted? After the Emancipation Proclamation, contrabands became "free agents"? [Groan]

Lucy, you spoiled it for me. :) In my AP Government class, I have three hockey players, two football players, and a cheerleader. (And a partridge in a pair tree...)

Anyway, they're always framing things with their sports knowledge; it's fun to go with it and see if we can make it work.

Recently, the baseball players testifying in Congress was a great example of Congressional oversight. That was one thing I took off with and had a great discussion.
