Each class was divided into 2 groups. Group 1 will start with reading the book on Mexico and group 2 will do the assignments in the textbook. You will be given 3 class periods to complete the group 1 assignment, and 3 to 4 days to complete the group 2 assignments. IF YOU WERE ABENT TODAY YOU ARE IN GROUP 2, so start the first assignment for group 2.
Each group will work independently, so it is very important to stay on task. You will be tested on Mexico when both groups have completed reading the booklet on Mexico and we have class discussions on certain topics about Mexico.
When you are working on the group 2 assignments, you will take the quiz for each section after you complete the different section assignment. For example when you finish taking notes on 4.3 you will take the 4.3 quiz.
Read (pg.4-43) and take notes on the Book Mexico: Country Connections. Use the given guide pages to take your notes.
