I've graded your Study Guide for Chapter 22 (Later Middle Ages).  You can check Google Classroom for scores. 

Correction: the total for the Study Guide was 130 points.  The total for the whole summer assignment turns out to be 190.  

A note about late work: As I work my way through your assignments, I grade whatever has been turned in up to that point.  After I finish grading all the assignments, I may have time to go back and check for any assignment you turned in late.

Email me if you have any questions!

See you on August 13th....sort of.

If you haven't yet signed in to Google Classroom, the code has changed.  The new code gwbtmtz.
If you've already signed in, there's no need to do anything, you're still signed in.  

Reminder: I'm making comments directly on your summer assignment documents (in other words, I'm not using the comments field).  You can open the document to see the comments.  

Here's the link for information on the schedule for the first few weeks of school:

I'm working my way through your summer assignment. If you did not turn in the summer work, you need to contact me for support/advice.  If you have decided to drop APEH, please contact your counselor as soon as possible to have your schedule changed.

I'm working my way through your summer assignments!

I'm making comments, if any, directly on your document (rather than in the comments box), so you will need to open your document to see the comments.

Check out the materials and information posted in Google Classroom.  Email me if you have any questions.

The district and administration are working on the calendar for the first few weeks of school.  You should be hearing something by email soon. 

Take a well-deserved rest from now til the 13th!

I hope everyone is making good progress on the summer assignment!  Email me if you're having problems, so I can help get you on the right track. 

I see that some of you have already finished some/all of the work.  Impressive! 

We still don't know what school will be like in August, but we've been told that at least the first 4 weeks will be entirely remote. 

Be sure to contact me if you think you will not be able to get your summer assignment turned in on time. It's important for everyone to be ready to review the later Middle Ages and move on to the Renaissance as soon as the school year starts. 

Have a wonderful summer!

Feel free to email me if you have any questions about the summer assignment.  Also, please let me know if you find any bad links, or other problems with the materials.  This will give me a chance to correct the problems.

When you read/hear about the news of the day, remember to think about historical developments that set the stage for current events.  For example, the coronavirus pandemic is an example of increasing globalization.  When did global trade/travel routes begin to become common?  What are some other examples of globalization -- the movement of people and their ideas, products, germs? 

What about racial disparities in American society....what long-term historical trends are playing out in our own time?
