I'm taking it easy on you over the break. All you have to do is this:
Write me a four-paragraph e-mail. Reflect on the first four months of the school year. Include highlights of social studies for you, things you plan to do to improve, and things that we could to improve the class in general. You can also tell me how your Christmas/holiday is. I should receive the e-mail any time before we return to school on January 3.
I'd highly recommend that you take the time to complete an extra credit assignment too!
Update: A list of options for your extra credit assignments is listed here: http://ccaahistory.blogspot.com/2011/11/perennial-extra-credit-assignments.html
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy new year!
