If you were unable to watch the Brainpop on Communism and complete the quiz I gave to you in class, you need to do that tonight. You can go through the library’s website.

I know some were having trouble getting to Cobb Digital Library from the website in your agenda sticker to watch the brainpop. If you are, feel free to go to this page on the media center’s website and go from there! It should work a little easier. If you have any questions, please let me know! http://www.cobblearning.net/durhammediacenter/cobb-digital-library/  

If it asks you for a [email protected], use your office 365 login and password. If if asks for your student id, use that information. If none of that works, come see me in HR, and I will help you watch it!
