Welcome back!
It looks like Spring Break may have brought Spring weather with it. But now that we're back in school it's time to see how things are going, and get ready for the next few months of school.

Many students have not turned in the last essay (on the presidency, due Friday before vacation) so if you still have work to do on that, you may want to focus your efforts there before starting on tonight's assignment.

But BEFORE YOU DO, take this short survey to get ready for our next unit on Civil Rights. 

If you did turn in your essay before or over vacation, take time in class today to get ahead and complete tonight's homework from our new assessment cycle. Then you can enjoy the spring weather after school without any worries about tonight's homework.

READ pages 485-489. As you read, define the terms in the list on the left in Your Own Words Please (YOWP). Then create answers to the questions on the right.
