    The Rhetoric history assignment for wk 1 is to read ch.2-3 in Jim Callan's book. The assignment for wk 2 is ch. 3-4. In looking at the questions, ch. 3 deals w/ Roosevelt's second term and seems to fit wk. 2 better. Should it be removed from the first week, or is it given twice as a review?
    Thanks,
    Laura

    Hi,
    Here is the correct assignment:
    Summer: Ch. 1
    W 1--Ch. 2
    W 2--Ch. 3
    W 3--p. 61-98

    Next time that we do a DE update (which should be very soon), the corrected assignment will be there.

    Blessings,

    OK-I'm still confused w/this because the Rhetoric History questions for wk. 2 ask them about Taft's presidency, which is covered in ch. 4. So, is it possible that wk. 2 should be to read ch. 3-4 and week 3 to read 77-98??
    Thank you,
    Laura

    Teddy's presidency is split by administration between the first two weeks; Taft is also in Week 2. Then in Week 3, it's Wilson's first administration, but not past the outbreak of war. So... looking at this further...and I don't know how this has gotten us so confused, you are perfectly correct. Try THIS:

    Summer: Chapter 1
    Week 1: Chapter 2, Teddy's first term
    Week 2: Chapters 3-4, Teddy's second term and Taft.
    Week 3: p. 77-98

    Thank you, Marcia. Yes, with all that you folks have going on right now, I have no idea how you could get confused!

    I'm SO glad you persevered. We're releasing the major update of Year 4 Unit 1 next week and I'm SO glad we got the chance to finally get this right. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
    Blessings,
