US History Extra Credit: The Scopes "Monkey" Trial

If ALL homework due this week has been turned in completed, in proper format, and on time this week, you are eligible to submit this extra credit. Cutting, late to class without a valid reason (as determined by me), or being unprepared for class makes you ineligible for this extra credit.


Write your 3-5 page paper using the video discussing The Scopes Trial.  In your paper, pay particular attention to the issues of the trial, how the Tennessee law may - or may not - have violated the Constitution, whether a teacher should be told what to teach by a government or a religious group, and your opinion on the issues and the outcome of the trial.  All papers must be handwritten, in standard blue or black pen, to be accepted. Use a proper homework heading and the title of this blog entry as your assignment title.

Due no later than the beginning of your class period Friday, 3/15. No exceptions!!
