Today we finished up the Renaissance with a brief jaunt through the life of Henry the VIII ( Henry-VIII-and-the-Reformation-in-England)

 

We watched a hilarious History Bites episode from Lera, Claire, Melissa, Michaela, and Krisztina.

 

It has been an absolute honour to teach you all.  Block A has been the best part of my day.  Please send me pictures of you all dressed up for grad

 

It is really important to check the school website or this website Sunday and Monday to see if there is a final exam on Tuesday.  Failure to make the exam because you are informed is not a good excuse.
