AMNESTY DAY 2016
Did you miss some classwork and homework assignments early in the semester? Are those zeros weighing down your grade? I know that at the beginning of the semester it’s sometimes hard to see how each assignment is worthwhile so I have an opportunity for you to review and recover.
First, you may complete the current event analysis as a replacement grade for any classwork or homework 0 in the gradebook. This involves reading a news article, understanding its meaning, and linking it to something we’ve looked at in World History. This will also help you build your synthesis skills.
This is the worksheet you need to complete the optional current events assignment
Additionally, you may complete any assignment that is a 0 in the homework and classwork section of the gradebook for half credit. This includes timelines, vocabulary, reading notes, blog posts, etc.
These assignments are due by December 2nd, 2016 with no exceptions.
