You’ll spend the first portion of the class learning more about key people and battles from the War of 1812 based on the work of your peers and their Infographics.  Then you will draw connections and build on argument on Historical Significance.  The assignment can be found in your Class Notebook and the Infographics can be found on Teams-Unit 3 channel-Files-Infographics folder.

Next, the Unit 3 assessment will be presented to you.  Be sure to ask any questions you have so you can prepare for tomorrow.
