We discussed the parameters of the college application assignment, due 12/7.  Students/ groups will need to choose one character from the unit 4 vocab list and submit an application, transcript, and recommendations on his/ her behalf.  The pressure is great as there are very limited slots available, and there are no safety schools!  Successful applicants will be rewarded!

Students typed their unit 3 DBQs and submitted them to turnitin.com.  Those who didn’t finish in class need to complete by Monday, and return hand-written copies to me.
