Australia and Final Exam!

I cannot believe we are near the end of the year. We have a very short unit on Australia. In fact the test is on Tuesday May 10. The students also have a final exam on May 17. They will be getting part of their study guide each day for the final exam, and I am attaching some power points on Australia to help them study for that test. Please have them nightly review the portion of the study guide they get each day for the final. August was a long time ago, and everything is on the final exam!!

Australia Notes
1. The students should study two graphic organizers given in class.

Document Based Question (Essay)

The students are in the process of writing an essay entitled “Has NAFTA kept its promises to the workers in the Maquiladoras in Mexico?” These are factories along the boarder of Mexico and the United States. This essay is a test (summative) grade, and is due the Friday before Spring Break. The students have the documents to use. I cannot post them on my blog because they are only to be copied for school use. If your child needs another copy, just let me know!
