Focus: We'll focus this week on Presentation as an Expert Skill. Monday will wrap up our American Underclass Unit, with students taking the MC Test individually (though with open books). You'll also turn in your packets from last week, with the quiz stapled on top. Tuesday, we will have Dr. Dudowitz as our guest speaker from UCLA; afterwards, we'll look at how you guys did in terms of grades.
