2. The essay is a separate grade. **If the essay is handed in on time, when it is returned I will allow you one week to rewrite it for a new grade. If the essay is turned in late, the rewrite option is not given. This is a another separate test grade.
3. DBQ packets MUST be available in every class AND strategies. We will be spending some time on these in class. The rest of the assignment is to be done at home.
