If you missed class, we complete the following:
PRACTICE QUESTION (please note that all your questions will involve some type of multi-media or images associated with the characters we have studied and the action involving them. The most effective way to prepare is to go through your GOLDENROD handout that details each character, and make sure you have read the section in your text assigned for homework. The following question is an example of what you should anticipate for Friday's quiz.) Please respond to this question for your extra-credit regarding Friday's quiz.
