World History 2 Update

Week of March 9 - 13, 2015

Hi there!

Hope everyone enjoyed the snow and kept safe & dry. I'm excited for more daylight in the evening and hopefully warmer days to come!


Last week, on Wednesday, March 4, students took the unit #3 test. Today, students started unit #4 which covers the Scientific Revolution, French Revolution, English Civil War, and the Enlightenment. We will work through this unit asap and move onto unit #5. We will then be back on track after missing so many days for snow.


Please let me know if you have any questions!


Sincerely,

Lori Rocco
