The following are links that may be useful to you this year. Please note that if you use the text book links, you must write down the username and password before going to the web site. Your Quia username and password will be given to you by me:
Quia Web Site:
http://www.quia.com/web Use your QUIA username and password to log onto QUIA. If you forgot or lost your QUIA username and password, e-mail me. Use Quia for vocabulary and grammar practice. Take assigned quizzes on QUIA to help practice for assessments!
Quizlet Web Site:
http://www.quizlet.com If you already have a quizlet username, you need to look for my class using quizlet's search function. For example, if you are in my period 2 7th grade class, you would enter in the search bar "period 2 - 7th grade", look for me in the search results and request to join the class. Once you do that, I will admit you into the class. Make sure that you write down your user name and password and keep it in a safe place because I cannot help you look it up, unlike in the QUIA web site.
