All right then, welcome to the third week of NM history. So, no class on Monday (MLK day!). And remember, you have THREE assignments due on Tuesday. You had two class days and a long weekend to get them done, so make sure you have them!
So, this week we're going to accomplish three things (I hope!)
1. We'll finish up the first Thematic Unit. We're going to talk about the material in the Intro chapter on Tuesday and we'll grade your GRi in class. There won't be a test on this chapter although I may give you a quiz on your reading. If you finished your GRi you'll do fine, fear not!
2. We'll finish up our unit on the States. There WILL be a test on the 50 states of the Untied States. Keep in mind that you'll need to know where the states are. The 50 states test is an Exam, not a quiz, which means it's worth three times the points of your sectional quizzes.
3. We're going to talk about doing a paper....what that's supposed to look like and what MLA format looks like. You have a paper due on Tuesday, remember, so be sure to have it done!
We might get some weather this week. I hope we don't have any delays or missed days. I'd really like to finish the unit this week. I suppose that's out of our control, though, so keep on top of school announcements!
