In your notebook, respond to the following exit ticket question: Why is it important to use historical thinking skills when learning about history? How do these skills help us understand what we are reading about? 

I am doing a materials check on Tuesday/Wednesday. If you do not have at least a notebook (any kind) and a pen/pencil I will be issuing demerits for not being ready. If you are unable to get either of these supplies before Tuesday/Wednesday, please e-mail me (ecobb@laalliance.org) or come see me in person and we can work something out.
