The test will cover content and vocabulary from pages 38-40 and 42 (they do not need to know the content on page 41; we are doing a whole separate lesson on the Aztec people so they do not need to know the content on page 43 either). They have a STUDY GUIDE in their notebooks.

8th grade Social Studies: Finish the Henry VIII assignment on STUDY.COM by the next time we meet (Fri. Sept. 21).
8th grade Religion: Each week or so we will focus on a different MASS RESPONSE. I will give you a written quiz and, more importantly, Mrs. Sullivan will judge how the class does on the response during Friday Mass. The focus for this week and next is: "MAY THE LORD ACCEPT THE SACRIFICE AT YOUR HANDS FOR THE PRAISE AND GLORY OF HIS NAME, FOR OUR GOOD AND THE GOOD OF ALL HIS HOLY CHURCH." (This response is after the priest has received the gifts of bread and wine and is at the altar. The priest will say: "Pray brothers and sisters, that our sacrifice may be acceptable to God the almighty Father.")
