Online Study Session!

Since there is a test coming up next Monday, the 9th.....I am offering an online study session.  That means you can ask me any questions you have about the test over Ancient Greece. 

I will also quiz you over ancient Greece to see if you're prepared.  The quizzing is meant to prepare you.  It's not graded...just for learning! 

I will be this blog website on Sunday, January 8th from 8:45 - 9:15pm.  (After Olivia goes to bed)  I will be live answering questions. 

ARE YOU READY!?
