  • 8. Because we don't have a lot of time today, I urge you to take a look at my website. There, you will find some things that we have done recently. Become familiar with the websites, as most of our homework is listed on there. I use technology often, and students will be asked to do a lot of different activities online. If you check out some of my links, you'll be prepared for next year.
