Lower Sixth: Essay

Leave a comment

Since many of you weren’t here today, this is the essay title that is due on the 9th of Jan.

“How far do you agree that the most important reason the Republicans lost the 1932 election was Hoover’s policy decisions since 1929?”

You will find lots of information in the shared folder in the America section – the section 1 revision sheet is particularly useful as is the transcript for the Great Courses (lectures 64 & 65 I think). You will also find a link to the Washington Post’s programmes on the Presidents in the America section of the blogroll.


I hope you have a relatively restful break

Nearly ready for Indian food day.
