A Visit from the President!!!
Ms. Bergin's social studies classes spent time over the past week researching and forming opinions as to whether or not the United States should have dropped the atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II. They used primary source documents such as memos and letters to the president and the Potsdam Declaration itself. They also read and took notes from articles that historians have written on the subject. On Friday President Truman himself came to hear the speeches that the students had prepared.....listen in on the speeches here!
