    World Lit: 

    Here is your review material material for the upcoming test on Unit 11 in the Lit book.  For quotations, you need to have the work the quotation is from, as well as the name of the character speaking. Please have that in class Wednesday. For the review questions, you can use those for your own personal review on your own time. They will not be required to be finished/turned in on Wednesday. These are not all of the questions either.  I advise you to study as you go, and not cram for tests. Review some now, review some later ;)

    Complete STTAMP-FL method

    Watch Video about STTAMP FL of Fire and Ice AFTER you have completed the process on your own. Don't change your original answers!! I'd like to see what you originially came up with. But you DO need to add the answeres discussed in the video ---> 

    **Note: I made this video specifically for my satellite students last year, so please excuse me if I addressed them specifically. When I say something about what "we did in class" it's not referring to our class yesterday, but last year's class, so don't be confused by that.  Also, last year we did Fire and Ice first and THEN "How Can I Keep From Singing,"  so the last 4 minutes will be a little bit of discussion of that.
