Week of March 5-8 and March 12-16th

This week we have been working on our final history standards and one of our Economic standards.

I look forward to seeing what you all have created!

Students have been in the media center or computer lab creating a stand alone presentation. All three social studies classes are working together. So some students are able to work with students from Mr. Banks and Mr. Houses classes.

Students will have a total of 5 days to complete their presentation, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday.

Starting on Tuesday, March 13th students will do a museum type lesson in which they will be able to gather and learn information about the standards from the presentations. They will spend a day on each standard that they did not create a presentation. They will have Friday March 13th to make sure they have all information they need to be successful for any of the standards.

Monday March 19th: Students will take a summative over standard History standard 8,9, 10, 12 and Economic standard 2. This summative will be two different grades. Splitting the standard into two different assessments.

The presentation will be the final grade for the 3rd 9 weeks. The summative assessments will be the first two grades for the 4th 9 weeks.

Below are the instructions.
