Unit 8 Test

We have just begun our eighth unit of the year in world history.  Unit 8 will cover the Industrial Revolution as well as the Age of Imperialism.  This is an exciting unit because we are getting closer to modern times, and the students always show a little more interest in these later topics.  As of now, we are scheduled to test on Wednesday, March 2, 2011.  The students will receive their study guide two days ahead of testing.  Please ensure that they complete this, as it is worth homework points, and outlines what will be on the test.

Just a heads up, our first TAKS test of the year will be on Tuesday, March 1, 2011.  This is the ELA Test (English Language Arts).  It is a long one.  Students can bring snacks since we will be testing until 1:00pm.  The rest of the TAKS tests are not until mid/late-April.
