Weather: Sunny   Plan: Akagi JHS

I finished studying all the US Presidents today. I wrote about all 43 presidents in 44 pages. Now I need a new US-themed subject to study, but I haven't been able to think of one yet. What do you think I should study? I have to start practicing writing essays, but essay writing seems hard for me, so I am a little scared to start. It makes me worry.

  • There's still the Federalist Papers.

    You could study each of the states.

    Or US history.

    Or famous court cases.
    • I am working through the Federalist Papers, but I am just reading them, not studying (read: taking notes) them.

      I was thinking about doing the states next as well. I don't know them as well as I would like (I have been listening to Wakko's America over and over again lately).

      Do you know of a good website that lists facts about each of the states like the CIA World Factbook lists facts about countries?
  • YES! Wakko's America!! I love that song.

    You have hit a good portion of the basic America History study points already. The Constitution, Bill of Rights, Federalist Papers, Presidents, Etc. Studying each state would be a good idea, and also famous/important court cases. You could try Wikipedia entries for each state? Might be better sources out there tho.

    Along with the court cases you could study the important Supreme Court Justices, or even just look into the ideologies of the current judges. There is a lot of controversy right now about Pres. Bush's new appointee to the court to replace Justice O'Connor. It isn't US/world history per-se but could be interesting.

      That sounds like good advise! Now I need to find a list of extremely important court cases... I know of a handful of them, but...
