2008 History AP Exams

I graded history ap exams last month and the document question was on the war in Vietnam. Some of the amusing answers that I read include:
  • The men sent to Vietnam had no intention of succeeding or returning home. This was a major strategy problem for the U.S. military.
  • Before the Gulf of Tonkin resolution there was an incident known as the sinking of the Lusitania.
  • The Vietnam War followed great foreign policy traditions such as Manifest Destiny, the Monroe Doctrine, and Eisenhower's Annex to the Monroe Doctrine.

Fun stuff!

That's nothing. Once, when I was in school, a teacher asked who Lewis and Clark were. This girl popped up and shouted- "Superman and his friend."

I nearly died. The teacher had to leave the room because he was laughing at her so hard.
