Assignments for 5/18/17

Both classes are to complete a series of questions about the 1970s.  You may use a book (either the American Anthem [blue book] or a red book called The Americans) to assist with finding the answers.  I would start with The Americans.  This is to be done individually and turned in upon completion.
