THANKSGIVING DAY -- no class

Hello, All:
The PPT I am including for this date is only intended to provide you with some extra resources on lesson and assessment design. The resources may help you have more confidence about pre and post assessments as well as the lessons you are designing. Remember that you want to consider integrating appropriate types of technology into various lessons.
Take care and have a truly happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends. See you the following Thursday.
