UNIT 2 INTRODUCTION

Hello ladies of grade 8,

For those of you who missed class last week, here’s what we did.

First, we watched this video. Take notes on ideas that come to your mind while you watch it. Save them for later use.

After that, we watched this other video.

Then, we watched the power point presentation below. It is a video, so you can stop, fast forward or rewind when required. Watch it in HD for a better quality.

Below are the guidelines you just watched and the complete response that I wrote as an example.
