Extra Credit List Updated

A couple of pieces of advice for the week of Thanksgiving, first enjoy the holiday. :)

What I would do is pat yourself on the back a little. You have made it through the first semester (we only have 1 week of instruction left, a week of review and then finals)! Just think, you were shaking in your boots at the beginning of this, but you have it under control. You can do it.

Next, once you have taken time with family, friends, and had a nice bit of food (don't forget football)... 
* Chapter 13 is a beast. Try to focus your study on the comparison between Renaissance Europe and Ming Dynasty China. That is where we will spend the most time and focus when we return from Thanksgiving. But, I would print the target sheet, use the companion internet site for Strayer, and study the vocabulary.
* Extra Credit! This would be a great time to get it done so that it is not hanging over your heads. Remember, just because the last day to turn it in is on Dec. 2nd, that doesn't mean you have to do it on December 1st! (Especially considering we have a test on Dec. 2nd)

I spent some time this morning updating the Book, Documentary, and Movie list for extra credit.

If you have any questions about it, or if you have something you would like to see added, please let me know.

It would be a very good idea to get this done over the week we have off for Thanksgiving. :)

Hope everyone has a great break this week. Here is a little inspiration for you...
