We took our very first vocab quiz today!

We then continued discussing Jamestown.

Indentured Servitude tomorrow, then “Was the Colonial Period a ‘Golden Age’ for Women in America?” due on Wednesday.  Read both selections.  Decide which you agree with more strongly. Write a paragraph explaining why, and submit to Turnitin.com.

Students set up their accounts for the online edition of the textbook.

They then had time to continue working on their map quizzes at Sheppardsoftware.com.  Students will need to get 150 or more correct out of 168 possible on the 5 maps in order to receive full credit.  Print the screen show your score for each map and turn them in to me to verify your performance.  You will have until October 5 to complete.
