It was good being with you all this morning, even if only virtually. Very happy to see most all of you are healthy!
I'd like to go over the things we talked about this morning.
First, we'll have a quiz on Chapter 8 on Friday April 3. So make sure you read the chapter.
We still have 1 more test and 1 more paper to complete this semester.
Here is what we'll do:
The test will be open book so you can use the textbook and your notes. I'll give you no more than 3 essay questions to complete. I'll distribute the test questions on Monday April 6. You will need to complete and turn in the test by Friday April 10 deadline.
I'll distribute the Assignment Sheet for the last paper on Monday April 13.
The deadline for the paper will be Monday April 20. (That's our last class.) No late papers will be accepted.
As promised, I'm including links to two articles for you to read. When you are finished, I'd like you to comment on each of the two stories. I'd like to see a total of 500 words total on the stories. (Not 500 words each.)
Feel free to go longer if you're inspired.
You can post your comments on your blog.
Your blog comments will go toward your quiz grade.
