Students worked through the essay writing activities on identifying critical words and evaluating what the question is asking. The third part of the activity dealing with evaluating documents will be homework. Bring Part A of the handout completed to class Friday. Friday we will also do test corrections, and students will receive assignments and due dates for Unit 2.

Students worked on the Middle Ages web in the Middle Ages packet.

Students will need to bring their completed packets to turn in on block day prior to taking the Middle Ages quiz. Students will also need to bring textbooks. Time permitting, we will start the Renaissance unit.
