Welcome back. I hope you had an awesome break, and that your batteries are recharged and you are ready for the "big push" to the finish.
We have a lot to accomplish over the next few weeks, including preparation for your final exam on January 28th (at 1:00pm). You also have a research essay to complete (here is Stage Three), and a unit test on the Second World War to write (this Friday). I would like all your Stage Threes in no later than Monday, January 14th (with the final essays due the 21st?)
We have two missed seminars to finish up today, and we will spend the rest of the time getting organized for the push ahead.
