Since so many of you missed this week's class, I've posted the lesson plan for the day including the links to the video's we watched. I'll also email students pdf's of the slides we discussed. If you have any questions, let me know. Don't forget to get your blogs up to date so I can grade you! Also, meet at the Children's Museum next class meeting (3/22) at 2:15 outside the front of the museum. Entrance fee is $5. Have a great Spring Break!
Below are photos of your classmates, striking heroic poses with objects that symbolize power! See what fun you missed!
