Academic Study Hall In school or college, a study period or "study hall" is a period in which a student may undertake self-directed learning activities, rather than having lessons being taught by a teacher (Source: Wikipedia). Today, if time permits, you have the opportunity to use this period to further your academic success in the best way you see fit. I would strongly suggest using part of this time to completing some of the Social Studies or Language Arts assignments from the past week which were due today, or the assignments, including the EdPuzzle activity, which are due next week.
