History Mid Term Exam
Last year,the end-of-the-year test was a take-home exam and you did very well.
You prepared a topic on your own, using google drive and you showed you can read and understand and also make reflections by yourself!
This year, you are going to work on another topic, which we have not seen in class, and you will prepare a presentation using google presentations.
Pay attention to my questions and the requirements for the test. Of course, you don´t need to copy questions in your presentations, just deal with the topics.
If you have questions, send an email to me (do not ask questions in class)
