Africa Geo Summative – Remediation/Retest Info

Hi everyone!  I hope you are staying warm today!

Africa Summative grades have been posted in Synergy (except for the few students who could not access iRespond – your answer sheets are at school).  Take a look at your score to see if you need to retest.

If you need to retest, please COMPLETE the review guide posted here.  Review-Guide-Africa-Geo-Summative-ruotx9-2h0665h .  Since we have lost class time due to the weather, we will NOT use class time to remediate.  Be prepared to ASK questions if you need help on the review questions.  (I can answer questions anytime during class/homeroom time etc.)

You will be able to retest after completing the review guide AND studying.  I will be available next week at 8:15 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday mornings to administer the retest.  If you are unable to come early, please DON’T worry.  Just let me know, and we WILL make other arrangements for you to test.

Enjoy the snow 🙂
