Note: The test will take the entire class period (it is a lengthy exam) on
Friday. Please come prepared to quickly turn in your To Kill a
Mockingbird project at the beginning of the class period without
issues/questions so I can provide you with as much time as possible to
take the exam. There will be no time to review your study guide notes on
the day of the exam so please come prepared.
There is a lot of information to review- manage your time wisely between adding the
final touches to your Summer Reading Project (Cover Page, 9 Artifact Pages,
Dialectical Journal) and reviewing for the exam.
