Revised Schedule for the Final Weeks

Just wanted to rework our schedule for the last few weeks of class to accommodate the missed time on account of the storm. Please note that the college has added Friday, Dec. 14, as an additional class day, which will be a Wednesday schedule. We still have three quizzes left in this semester for Chapters 34, 35, and 36. We will get through Chapters 37 and 38 as well, but will not have a quiz on those since they will be covered in the final. Here are the days for the quizzes, followed by the full revised reading schedule.
