Today in class the students had a homework assignment to turn in . This was given on Friday and due today. Students then took a quiz over the homework material (review from last year).
Students also worked on their ethnic group coat of arms. These should be finished. I will be collecting, but the students should hold until I ask for them.
Students were given their performance tasks back today along with the corrected answers so they (and parents) can see if they would like too.
