ANNOUNCEMENT: Wednesdays after school I will be conducting sessions on study tips and tricks. I plan on discussing how to skim and scan a text successfully, how to take meaningful notes, how to effectively outline, as well as discussing effective writing strategies. I will take suggestions from students as to what will serve them well. I encourage all to attend and will require some students to specifically attend. Bring your own snack but we will be getting right to work!
If you can't make it but want the tips then check out the page on the left labeled Tips and Tricks

ANNOUNCEMENT: Ms. M. Lynde's twitter page can be found at http://twitter.com/Mlyndeclasses. This service provides an alternative way of receiving homework and announcement reminders. The same information will be provided on the class Google calendar as found on http://mlynde.wikispaces.com/World+History.
