Hard to believe that today was our last day at VAMPY.
On Thursday, our class finished examining the presidency of Barack Obama by looking at major events and issues during his presidency. We watched clips from the 2012 presidential election and campaign commercials and political satire about the campaigns of Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.
On Wednesday morning we wrapped up the presidency of George W. Bush and had a round-table discussion over several Supreme Court cases involving campaign money, gun control, and healthcare.
On Tuesday morning, our class analyzed historical rankings contrasting the presidencies of George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush. The students shared topics they had researched that occurred during the first term of George W. Bush and watched a clip about his presidency.
On Monday morning, students wrote in their journals about their favorite part of the trip to Washington, D.C.. We also watched a short summary over the Bill Clinton presidency.
