This has been a week of LOTS of changes for the webpage & hopefully the changes are helpful. Please explore all the different new pages and note all the chances for extra-credit and ways to submit work for feedback (thesis statements and topic sentences). I will try to put up a few tips for studying for the unit test prior to the end of the weekend. Hope you are all getting those last few assignments completed and any questions can be posted here or sent through the individual pages.
We have had so much to talk about since our last post - Ashley came back, we have had some major revisions and changes .... too much to post it all here. Basically, after some suggestions and discussion - new pages will be added to the site so that more access to content can be had - as well as the ability to view the videos we do in class. Please let me know if you have trouble opening some of the documents as I am posting them in the formats that I created them in (Windows Vista version, which may not be compatible with all computers). So look for the pages to come with notes, videos, worksheets and whatever else... The videos are with the notes and activities for the entire unit - I have tried to include each handout that was given as support for the handouts to help.
