Periods 4 – 7 are reading documents about Mansa Musa and interpreting those documents to create a five paragraph essay. This is in readiness for 8th grade and high school DBQ requirements. Beginning the week of May 6th we will return to the book Outsiders and complete small writing responses in conjunction with that.
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N S ! ! FIRST PERIOD.
One of our NPR podcast entries won an honorable mention. This is amazing since there were 6,000 entries and only 2 overall winners. I am very proud to be apart of this achievement.
Because we have little access to technology and the podcast equipment for the rest of the year. I have allowed students to choose another project to complete. Some are doing book talks and other are creating their own research based project.
