I have extended the unit test for one week. The quizzes will still take place each week until the next test. I have also added Power Points for the chapters we will be discussing before the next Unit III/IV Test!
Unit III/IV Test will cover Brinkley Chapters 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. There will be a vocabulary quiz on chapter 10 on October 31 and November 1, 2016. Please review those chapters before next unit test on November 9 and 10, 2016. Please note: 1st and 3rd periods will take the exam first. This test will have 30 MC questions, 1 SAQ and 1 LEQ.
You may watch Birth of a Nation for extra credit. It is a movie about Nat Turner and the slave uprising in 1831 (see Brinkley or AMSCO for more historical information). You can watch the movie and then do a review for extra credit (see homework tab).
