Dear Parents and Students,

This semester we will begin Chapter 8  Greek Civilization:

  • Cultures are held together by shared beliefs and common practices.
  • People, places, and ideas change over time.
  • Leaders can bring about change in society.

 

Below you will find the dates for the chapter quizzes and test. Please make sure your child is studying the study guides that I provide for each quiz and test; I have also attached a chapter summary below. Students also have access to the online textbook that has practice games, charts, notes, and videos to help them as well. Also, students have the opportunity to earn extra credit each nine weeks. The forms for the extra credit are attached to the PDF documents on my Teacher Connection page below.
