Chapter 33 Test
 
TBA


Don’t want to do homework?  Remember the consequences of your choices:

1.    Get a zero on every assignment you fail to complete AND on homework quizzes!  (not recommended)

2.    Possible failure of the marking period (also not recommended!)

 

Global II: If LEGALLY Absent Today...


If you were legally absent today, it is YOUR responsibility to TURN IN your Cambodia & Cuba question sheets AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS Monday.  Failure to will result the zero remaining in Engrade for today's in-class test.  Should your work not be fully compete, the zero will also remain.

Fair warning.

Global II: "Test" again on Monday

Your Chapter 33 test will be given next Wednesday or Thursday, TBA on Monday.  You WILL have a test on Monday, same system as today.  Here is how it will work.
  • I will ask "you" a question from the Cuba, Iran, or First, Second, Third World questions sheets (that go with your documents.)  You will only have these 3 sheets, your pen, and your highlighter on your desk.
  • "You" will answer my question - immediately - because all you have to do is read what you wrote off your paper.  If you do that, and it is correct, you passedIf you do not (don't have the sheet, don't have it done, don't have that question, answer is clearly wrong or very incomplete)...you failNo second chance.

In case you need me to point it out, this means that EVERYONE will be called on AT LEAST ONCE during class.  I WILL NOT ALLOW ANSWERS BASED ON RAISED HANDS.  I have printed a randomized list from Engrade and that is the order I will use to ask the questions.  When will your name be called?  No way for you to know.

Counts exactly the same as every other in-class test you have taken.

Be on time, because to be late could mean a zero on the exam. 
Be prepared with ALL sheets and ALL questions completed.

Global II: Homework & Class tomorrow

For class tomorrow, make sure you:

1.  Have your "China Chart" (the one I gave you) fully completed using the handout sin class & notes you were supposed to copy.

2.  Get everything out of your folder BEFORE class starts...or you will be completely unprepared for class and I will be forced to give you a zero for classwork since you will not be able to answer my questions tomorrow.  And yes, I'm marking it off on my clipboard...

3.  Turn in p. 880, 11-16 at the START of class.  The same people in both classes keep turning HW in at the end of class...no more.  It's at the start of class or it isn't being accepted.  You are not going to sit in class & do last night's work instead of what we're doing in class.
