6. Pre-Test on Friday
  • Pre-test will cover Week 5 Academic Vocabulary

  • What Above and Beyond opportunities you are considering to move closer to an A --OR--
  • What plan is for getting the four current standards up to 3's --OR--
  • Just tell me, "Mr. Ippolito, I'm happy with my current grade right now. I'm cool. I'm chill. It's all good."
By the end of this week, students will:
  • Be able to argue, using evidence, what was Rome's greatest legacy (lasting contribution)
