    Also, WIIU Quizzes returned 12/1...if one did the formative assignments for the WIIU Unit, and earned below a B on the quiz, 21/25, then they can do quiz corrections to raise a D/F to a C (18.5/25) or a C to a B (21/25). This involves taking a copy of the quiz with them, and then returning at the beginning of the period their quiz answers, the copy of the quiz, AND AN ACCURATE AND WELL THOUGHT OUT 2-3 SENTENCES FOR EACH WRONG ANSWER, DETAILING WHAT THE CORRECT ANSWER ACTUALLY SHOULD BE.

     NOT READY TO GRADE THEM YET (A FEW MORE UNIT 1 TESTS TO GRADE) AND I WANT TO HAVE A "FLESH IT OUT SESSION" BEFORE THE FINAL DRAFT IS DUE.

    9/11-9/19 The first part of Unit 1 Unit 1, Sept 11 thru Sept 13was collected, checked on 9/14-9/15 (or it's missing, not completed!) The second part of Unit 1 Unit 1 Sept 14 thru Sept 19 is due 9/20 or 9/21. If one cannot or will not complete these by 9/21, THEN THEY SHOULD BE COMING IN TO GET EXTRA HELP ON 9/21 (THURSDAY) AFTER SCHOOL!! 
     
     
     
     
     9/20-10/10- We will complete Unit 1, Unit 1, Civ War, 9/20-10/4 And this is due/checkable on 10/5 or, for "late credit", on 10/9 at the BEGINNING OF THE PERIOD (last chance!) SRJ not here 10/6, so don't turn in that day!! We will do extension, review activities in class 10/5, 10/6, and 10/9...TEST ON UNIT 1 TUESDAY 10/10!! YOU SHOULD BE STUDYING 10/4-10/9!!
     
     
     
    If one never turns in all parts of the Unit, completely done, then they have effectively forfeited the right to do any redo or retake if the summative assessment for Unit 1 does not go particularly well (and keep in mind these are in class activities, not "homework")...........we all want to avoid this!!!!!!!!!!!
