- Challenge A is researching protozoa and algea, and reading "It Couldn't Just Happen" Chapter 7, which introduces the definition of the Theory of Evolution. Ask a Challenge A student for this definition in Community next week!
Essentials - The way we learn English Grammar and Writing is different than mainstream education. Here is a great video that will give you insight into the importance and art of diagramming. There is a second part to it that you can click on as well.
