    Review projects 

    on board today: 

    -->You are going to have a chance to re-write your essays or write an essay instead of a presentation because you failed due to not having enough time

      -->(I said under 4 minutes is a zero) or you didn’t follow the rubric

    -->Check your grade on skyward and you will know what you got on it (and why)

      -->essays haven’t been put into the gradebook because most of   them didn’t even meet the word count or MLA requirements

      --> but I’m sure almost EVERYONE could fix at least 1 thing on   their   essay

    Many of you will wonder what the “Amendment Project Topic” grade is: well 10/11 and 10/12 I told you to WRITE DOWN what amendment and project you are doing and TURN IT IN for a test grade – most of you didn’t do this – it has been over a week and now it stays a zero

    You will only have TODAY to work on this in class, the essay is due Friday at 3:15 pm to turnitin.com and you will have to work on it at home
