I am just touching base with everyone about class. Midterm research papers have been submitted and I expect to have them evaluated and returned before the day of midterm exams. The midterm exam will be a full practice AP exam. It will be scored and evaluated but not a graded assignment. It is just practice.
In an interesting note, Mariah discovered that hippocampus.org has updated it website to include a correlation to our text book. It seems that most of the video content matches the pages listed in the book. This means that the extra content is even more closely related to the reading! Some time watching internet videos can be a good thing!
Lastly, the unit 5 exam, Slavery and Sectionalism, will be given on January 17th. It will cover chapters 11-14. Everyone has the quizzes for chapters 11, 12 and (eventually) 14. There was no textbook reading quiz for chapter 13. Those questions form the basis for the exam and there will be a free response essay.
Thank you for your support.
