  • Hi, everyone! I hope you enjoyed your long weekend after our short first week of school. We are most definitely back for real now and, as such, will begin the long and brutal task of completing homework. EACH STUDENT SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT HOME A COPY OF OUR TEXTBOOK entitled "World History: Ancient Civilizations Through the Renaissance" (click on the title to see a picture of the cover). We will be using this book to complete most of our homework this year. Our first assignment will be:
      • Read Chapter 2 Section 1 (PP. 24 - 34).
      • Complete section assessment questions 1 - 4 found on page 34.
      • This will be due Monday, September 11th.
