Quote: "There will be no rescue, no intervention for us. We can only save ourselves. Many of you know influential people abroad, you must call these people. You must tell them what will happen to us... say goodbye. But when you say goodbye, say it as if you are reaching through the phone and holding their hand. Let them know that if they let go of that hand, you will die. We must shame them into sending help." - Paul Rusesabagina

Discuss the following items:
1. Book return is happening during English class.
2. Digital Project is optional and a bonus score. You will work with Mr. Duez on a project to create a 5-10 minute video to capture the essence of WHAP. This video will be used to help freshmen transition to the course.
3. Final Exam - Our final will be an AP Test for World History -or- one of our Practice AP Tests. Study those and prepare. The FRQ questions will be extra credit for your final exam grade.
