Weekly Forecast: 2/26 – 3/2

This week we will be working the economics in Africa as well as starting government.

There will be no formative or summative assessments this week due to class interruptions with a Black History Month Program, a guidance lesson (Mr. Rhodes this week and Mrs. Robinson next week), and Hawk Time schedule on Friday.  Resources for the lessons can always be found on the blog.

Standards for the Week:

SS7E1 Analyze different economic systems

SS7E2 Explain how voluntary trade benefits buyers and sellers in Africa.

SS7E3 Describe factors that influence economic growth and examine their presence or absence in Nigeria, South Africa, and Kenya

SS7CG1 Compare and contrast different forms of citizen participation in government.

Assessments:

There will be no summative or formative assessments this week.

Resources:
