I handed out these two items.  The Study Guide contains everything that will be on the final exam and the notes grade sheet you should have ready for notes grading on Friday.

GOVT - USCIS Civics Test for Final Exam

Just as a reminder, you have the same United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Civics Test that is given to immigrants seeking US citizenship.  This will be half of your FINAL EXAM at the end of the semester, so please take it seriously. You can download another copy of the exam here:

There are some great resources to help you with the Civics Exam right on the USCIS website.  I would encourage you to try to answer the questions for yourself FIRST, before simply getting all the answers from the website, but do what you think is going to help you learn the best.  That site is here:

MODCIV 12/8/11 - WWI Video Footage

Photo_1
The homework is another Sensory Figure (just like the one we did for the Sans Culotte Sensory Figure back during the French Revolution unit).  This time, though, this one is going up on the wall so make it extra good!
Photo_2
Great footage here!  Make sure you start the above assignment BEFORE watching the videos, then complete after watching.  Enjoy!
