  • Bellringer- How confident did you feel taking the test yesterday?  Did writing the stories in your packet help you to remember the stories for the test?  What things did you thing you knew really well?  What did things would you have liked to have known better?
  • Pick up the Setting the Stage for Conflict packet from the table by the door.
  • Turn to the notes page for Italian Unification and prepare to take notes.  Focus on setting, characters, and important events that move Italy closer to unification.

  • Read the test instructions carefully.  Select the choice that best suits you.  Materials and handouts are on the table by my desk.  Markers/ colored pencils are on the counter by the window.
  • When finished with the test, turn in the test direction sheet and your individual product to the tray by the door.  Please put away any markers/ colored  pencils you used.
  • Pick up and begin working on the Setting the Stage for War vocab sheet.  This will be due next week on block day.
