I will not accept any tests or reassessments after 3:20pm on Monday 3/17. If you want to have time to reassess it, please take it before the end of the school day Friday. Then, if you need to reassess it, I can set up a reassessment test due by Monday. I will not take accept any tests or reassessments after the end of the school day on Monday.

Of course, you can continue to practice and reassess past Monday, but it will not be figured into your first semester grade.

The Civil War Challenge is coming!

Civil War Challenge 2018

Work to do ahead of time:

Civil War Challenge Power Lines and Why Does It Matter? ~ You can also find this on GoogleClassroom. Please follow instructions!

One member of your platoon should go to “File, Make a Copy” and then share the copy with the other platoon members. Rename the shared copy “Block # Platoon # CW Challenge Power Lines and Why Does It Matter Today?”

(example: Block 5 Platoon 3 CW Challenge Power Lines and Why Does It Matter Today?)

In class T 12/4… and W 12/5.

I’m sorry I’m not with you AGAIN today. I’ve caught the stomach bug that a lot of our classmates have had.

Here’s what I would like you to work on today.

1. Somewhere near my desk – I’m guessing on my desk after they were utilized yesterday – is a stack of copies of “The Pickets.” It’s a really cool short story about the Civil War. Please just read it – no annotations, notes, etc. I have a class set, so please should not write anything on the stories and give them back when you’re done reading. We’ll talk about it next class.

2. Start working on your 12-sentence paragraph about “Why Secede?”. Turn your outlines into a clear, concise, polished paragraph. You’ll find this assignment on Google Classroom.

3. You can also work on NHD.

4. Finally, if your guest teacher has the chance to make copies, you’ll receive a fill-in-the-blanks copy of the Gettysburg Address. Using the links below (the PDF of the Gettysburg Address), fill in the blanks. Please write very neatly; take your time to ensure your handwriting is legible. And then… start to MEMORIZE IT! Yes, we are memorizing the Gettysburg Address! Of course, if your guest teacher does not have the chance to make copies, don’t worry about this. We’ll get to it later this week.

Please use your time wisely. Feel free to email me questions, and I’ll do my best to reply.

Thanks, gang! 🙂
