I am sure that you're already studying, but we do have a quiz on Thursday. It covers pp. 4-8 in your binder as well as the Key Terms and Places from Section 2. This quiz will be the last grade that makes it onto your midterm report. So that's two quizzes, lots of homework, and class participation going into your midterm grade. Oh, let's add in a binder check on Friday - we have 10 pages in the front section, at least two in the Key Terms section, and two glossaries in the Permanent File. Make sure that they are in order and numbered properly!
Midterm reports go home with you on 10/15. Meet the Teacher night in on 10/16.
