Monday -- Am Lit // BAV

 This picture might give you some sense of what it might have looked for the early American colonists.
We briefly explored who these people were, and why they might have come to America:
  1. Speculators
  2. Tradespeople looking to create new markets
  3. People wanting their own land and escape from feudalism
  4. Indentured servants
  5. Criminals
  6. People facing religious persecution

We will be reading in class, however, BAV has their own books, so I would like to see you reading ahead.
We also have access to the study guides -- which you should print out and put in your 3-ring binder.

We will be briefly going over 7.5 in class from your SYNTAX packet on Compound Sentences
We will read with the audio file playing for both classes.

Be sure to have all handouts and any papers that have been returned in your 3-ring binder for a grade for being complete to this day -- all handouts.

If you do not have them, you should go to the blog and print them out.

We will have a quiz on Thursday from the study guide and SYNTAX packet.
