Sept 21 - Quick HIPP and Unit 3 Test

Moment of truth!

Hopefully you came in and reviewed the last LEQ. I sure hope you did. I am excited to see the improvement from the first test, especially with thesis development and your understanding of the prompt as a whole.

Besides the LEQ Outline Assessment, we will complete a Quick HIPP in class and we may have a few minutes to introduce the next Unit.

Good Luck,

- Mr. T
