Due to the field trip, we have another shortened week. Regretfully, I’m pushing off our college essay meetings until next week.
Below are tablet & headphone assignments. Come in, grab your tablet / headphones, then return it to the appropriate number after class. Now we’ll know who is / isn’t plugging in their tablets.
We have a test on Thursday. Tests come every 4 weeks, cover 4 weeks worth of material (so from the beginning of the semester), are 4 times as long a quizzes and are thus worth 4 times as much.
Here’s the material that will be on this test.
