Test Review

I hope that you are all enjoying your spring break as much as I am! 
Remember that when you return from Spring break the following will be due: 
Your UN Project (if you did a PowerPoint on a googledoc share it with: jeremys@provo.edu, or email it to the same email), or if you are doing a YouTube video, send me the URL (to jeremys@provo.edu). As you are finishing up your projects, make sure to pay attention to the grading rubric, I will be grading your projects based on those guidelines!
Also you need to study for your TEST!!!! 

In order to prepare for the test:
1. Study the reading chapters ie. the bolded terms: be able to define the word, be able to give an example of the term, and give cause and effect
2. Make sure that you have studied and know the map of Sub-Saharan Africa!

map test help

For those of you who had a hard time with the Europe & Russia map test- here is alternative study option for you. On YouTube there are a bunch of videos that have mnemonic devices to help with memorization of countries :) here is the link to South America (if you look at his profile, he has videos for middle America & the Caribbean, as well as other regions that we've talked about in class or will talk about in the future) Another helpful site is the Sheppards Software that you used for your very first assignment. Good Luck!
