State Report - The Finish Line

State Reports - Written components are due ...THIS  FRIDAY -19th
(Whether you are finished or not, you must hand in your report Friday.)

Use this week to do your very best work. You are not being graded on what you did a month ago. You are being graded on your finished product. Don't rush through components this week just to get it finished. Make sure you are giving your very best effort over these last few days and truly thinking about how to make EVERY sentence the best possible. People who finish ahead of time may want to take a second look at their cover pages. The most important stage of the Report is the proof reading and editing. Make sure one component smoothly transitions to the next. You will probably have to add a few additional sentences at the start of your second and third components to achieve this. DO NOT inset pictures until the work is completely edited and corrected. This will avoid wasting ink.  You have all worked very hard on this project. Make sure your final copy is something that you are truly proud to submit.

Coming Tuesday - Living Wax Museum Guidelines

Congratulations on the '50 States and Capitals' Test- A record number of 100% were recorded this year.
