This Week In History (April 24-28)

This week in history we will continue with our comprehensive review of the SOLs. The week will conclude with a paper/pencil test on Friday.

Students have been reminded that all class work is being graded. Focus and effort need to be at their best at this time of year.

Student Growth Assessment #2 has been scheduled for Monday, May 8th.

All students are encouraged to use the resources from this site daily. There are electronic flash cards and games in quizlet. There is a games section as well, and the Check for Mastery tab gives great SOL type test questions, from a test bank that will continue to change the more you take it.

If a student has lost their notes they are all on this site, or if you would like to have a condensed version, click on the refrigerator cards tab. These would be great to have in class for a quick reference.

Best wishes to all students as SOLs and Final Exams approach.

Enjoy your weekend.
