Reminder

Items for the calendars this week.
1. Finish reading and taking notes in the CAP book for your second time through the material. This must be done..No excuses and everyone agreed to finish it on March 31st. We counted out how many pages everyone still needed to read and divided them by the number of days left in the week. Some had to read 6 pages a day while others 15 to 20.

2.  Organizing  notes into time period packets (One a day)

a. Foundation             8000 BCE to 600 CE
b. Post classic             600  to 1450    CE
c. Early Modern         1450-1750 CE
d. Modern                     1750-1914 CE
e. The Present Era      1914-Present
