  1. so i just watch the vanishing planet part 1 video and write a paper about it?? what kind of things should i include in it? thanks 🙂

    • Yes include the things we have talked about in class and enough info to let me know you watched the video, also feeling a handout might be better than a quiz tomorrow good luck

  2. My daughter Be jay will turn in the essay she states is due today over the holiday break. Please confirm if that’s OK. Michele.Jackson@Gmail.com

    • Of course that is ok, since I have rsp students in that class I told all of them that their paper was due before we come back , not today.. Have a great holiday
