Staying on top of things.

This blog is created as a way to stay on top of what we will be learning throughout the year and as a way to discuss various topics that will arise as you learn. I hope that you find this blog useful as a way of checking in on what you have missed while you were away and double-checking on the information that we will cover in the class.

An important note: It is YOUR responsibility to catch up on missed work and assignments through this blog. Therefore, I will expect that you will be prepared and ready for all activities and the work assigned will be completed on time. It is really important to stay on top of your work so we can be motivated, responsible members of the class.

Also, feel free to offer up your comments on lessons, activities, etc. as you like. It is important that you can comfortably offer up any feedback that will help create memorable learning experiences. Your voice is important.


Success does not come before effort in the dictionary!

Well, everyone managed to present their cities today except for the people who were at Splashdown.  (Althea, Jenmark, and Kristine - see you Tuesday afterschool in Rm 108).

Everyone will need to be at school on Friday from 12 pm to 2 pm in room 108.  We will have short assessment interviews - please remember your assessment sheet for the interview.  Everyone gets a 5 min time slot with me. We should be done very quickly.

After an important visit by Ms. Nannery, the oral presenters were able to show and share their Revolution inquiry work. There is only one left to see next day.
