Crazy day indeed!

Our schedule was different today!  We had 4,5,3,1, and 2!  All classes read an article about the current situation in Venezuela-annotating for symptoms of Revolution.  Students then wrote a rough draft to support their claim as to if Venezuela is suffering from Revolution Fever.  2 symptoms from their class list to be included with text evidence (cite the source).  BLOCK 3:  rough will be done in class tomorrow-have the article read.

Today we used our class symptom list to diagnose Cuba’s current health-do they still have Revolution Fever?  The “Cuba After Castro” should be highlighted AND annotated for class tomorrow.
