Please have READ Chapter 25 by our first day back, January 4. I will give you a short quiz (not a terms check) to make sure you have done this.

Your assignment for this chapter will be terms PLUS significance, plus a few questions over the chapter. Please NUMBER the terms and explain significance to receive full credit. These will be due on the SECOND class meeting, which is when your terms check will be.

The terms can be found on the tab right above here labeled “terms for semester 2 chapters.” I will post the questions here in this post on Tuesday. So check back.
