IB homework week of 1/2/14

2 Jan

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope your break was as restful as mine was. I was pretty productive overall, despite the fact that I didn’t do EVERYTHING on my list. I also got lots of sleep, saw lots of family, and got lots of friend time in. It was one of the more relaxing winter breaks I remember having. The fact that it was a whopping 12 days long didn’t hurt, either!

I hope the break from English homework helped you find some time to sleep, socialize, or read.

But now, of course, it’s back to the grindstone. Here’s your homework!

Edited 1/5/14 to reflect dates after snow day

If anything, maybe spend 10 minutes pasting in old prompts if you have them on looseleaf or something. If you spend lots of time getting your notebook ready, you are doing too much.
