Extra Credit Opportunity for AP US History

Students in my AP United States history course have an opportunity to earn extra credit this week. There will be a presentation about the Spanish explorer Cabeza de Vaca on Thursday, 21 February, at the Museum of Florida History. The presentation is free and will begin at 7:00 pm. These talks are usually in the theater downstairs, past the front desk and across from the large armadillo. I remember the last one I was at being standing room only, so be early. The event itself, including live music and food (not free), begins at 5:00 pm.

For fifteen points extra credit, you will need to attend the entire presentation, check in with me afterward, and write a one page summary of the information presented in the talk.

Information about the event can be found on the Museum of Florida History website: http://www.museumoffloridahistory.com/thirdthursday/
