World War I Work

Posted in World War I on March 13, 2014 by mrkufs

Well two straight days off.  At least we are prepared for it.  The exam for 20-21-22 will be moved to either Tuesday the 18th or Wednesday the 19th.

I am going to give you questions to answer below.  Put them on a separate sheet of paper.  This will require you to read Chapter 22.  To be honest, some of you owe me the 18 questions from break or the essay and today would be a good day for that to be done as well.  If you don’t have your APUSH Amsco book you are going to need to use Google.

*Do me one favor-only 37 of my 53 get these alerts. Could a few of you Facebook, text, Tweet, or Instagram your classmates so they can complete these questions as well?  That would be great.
