    This is an agenda of what I plan to do during the week.  Please note that I may change a few things during the week if I see that students need more or less time on certain assignments or topics.  Please email me with any questions or concerns at sharon.crawford@cpsb.org.

    This week we will focus on Chapter 3: Louisiana's Economy

    .Note:  I apologize for any typos that may (and probably will) occur on this page:) IMG_3070.PNG

    Also, check JCampus to see if you are missing any assignments.  If it shows an "X" for an assignment, that means I don't have it from you, but you may still turn it in.

     Chapter 3 textbook pages are attached in red. I will be attaching handouts, notes, and more links as the week progresses.  Please try to check this site daily because I will update it often.

    ***The link below is the power point for Chapter 3. It is on Pear Deck, so if you are viewing this from home, you will not be able to answer the questions on the computer like we will be doing in class.  If you are interested in watching the videos we viewed in class, let me know, and I will email them to you.
