You will choose 2 of the 4 questions to answer. Your answers should be thoughtful, in depth and fully explain your understanding of the information. Remember, this is your opportunity to show what you know and understand. Make sure to give examples and evidence from the textbook and readings to justify or explain your answers.  Your answers should be about 100-200 each. If your answer is less than 100 words or does not fully answer the question, points will be taken off.

Make sure your posts are in your own words. I already know what the texts say. I am not just looking for facts. I want your own insights and connections into the topic as well. Simply regurgitating facts or writing what the texts say does not demonstrate your knowledge or understanding of the topics.

1. Explain the court case of Marbury vs Madison. What was the case about? What was the result/decision? How did this case impact America and the judicial system?

3. Describe the War of 1812. What were the causes? What were the effects? What was the lasting impact of the war on America?
