Who is Mr. Plencner?



U.S. History

Debate Team

Links, links, links... Below you will find a collection of websites that do one of a few things: (a) broaden your understanding of a very specific class assignment, (b) offer a useful second or third look at an event or epoch of American history, (c) help you study American history, or (d) hope to create further interest in a topic or assignment.  Some of the links go to my own, homemade pages and others go to more professional-looking pages. Let me know if any of these helpful and don't forget to see the note at the very bottom.
