THINGS TO KNOW AND DO DURING WINTER BREAK
1) MAKEUP CURRENT EVENT DEADLINE EXTENDED!!
Because of the crazy days off, I am EXTENDING the deadline for the MAKEUP Current Event to FRIDAY, DEC. 23rd at 11:59pm. Again, this is for replacing any ZERO (0) you have for any Current Event #1 through #5. If you don’t have any zeros, congratulations! – you don’t do this assignment! This id EXTRA CREDIT so is not required, but for those with a zero this could be an easy way to get a 1-2% bump to your grade.
2) WANT SOME EXTRA CREDIT? WATCH "MR. SMITH GOES TO WASHINGTON"!
We will be studying Chapters 11 and 12 when we return in January, and there will be some Extra Credit questions available on the movie "Mr. Smith Goes to Washignton" (MSGTW). The holidays would be a great time to sit down and take advantage of this EC opportunity - as well as enjoy a great classic movie! The link to the movie is https://archive.org/details/MrSmithGoesToWashington1939480x360 . EC Questions will include questions about plot, characters and themes in the movie as related to Congress.
3) WANT TO GET AHEAD? WORK ON THE 11-12-MSGTW PACKET!
You will have some time (part homework, part in-class) to work on this packet. But if you want to get ahead on things you can start working on this packet. If you weren't able to pick one up in class before the Snowpocalypse, you can download a copy from the Files section (Titled "Ch11.12.MSGTWpacketrev11-2014")
