Week 17: Dec. 10-14, 2k18

Welcome to the LAST week before midterms #Davis8...We got some history to cover so here we go!
Hey #Davis8, here's the lowdown on how to use "A for the Days"

Below are the last listed assignments for the first half of the year...
Dec. 7 - Andrew Jackson Pres Project --- 15 A for the Days
Dec. 14 - Andrew Jackson paper due --- 4 A for the Days = 1 pt added to the grade
Dec. 20 - Midterm Study Guide Due! --- You may not use A for the Days
Dec. 20 - Cumulative Midterm (2 Test Grades) -- 5 A for the Days = 1 pt added to the grade

If you plan on using your A for the Day's on the midterm, you will write on the Scantron the total number of A for the Days you have and that number will be added to the grade you receive.  

A for the Days WILL NOT carry on into the second half of the year...Sorry!
