Take the unit test, using your own assignments to help you. If you have questions during the test, raise your hand. 

After taking the test and turning it in, turn your attention to the written assessment, that is due on Wednesday. Answer the Essential Question (below) in a well-organized, documented essay. Due by midnight in the Assessment Dropbox.

Essential Question --

NOTE: On the back of your map, you'll find a graphic organizer that you may want to work on now; it should help you on the written assessment. Or, if you don't know how or where to start, take a look at the scoring rubric below (also at the end of your Unit 9 assignment sheet). Use that as a guide to start your writing.
