Date Reminders

Just a reminder that tomorrow (Tuesday 10/21) is the Ch. 5 test.  It is multiple choice.  It wil lbe on the material covered in the homework, in class lectures and the readings.  The powerpoints for the lectures are online. 

In addition to that, students must turn in their work for the chapter.  Some of them have already been checked in class, but none have been recorded.

I have attached a picture of the table of contents for their study packet from the board.  This is what they should be studying, as well.

The Chapter 6 homework will be given to them tomorrow and it is due on Thursday, 10/23.  They will have time after the test to start it in class.

Almost all of the assignments have some time in class to be worked on.  Please talk to your student about using their time wisely.

Grades and other stuff

The six week grades are now online.  Please check them for any typos or mistakes.  The unit exam has been graded and is included.

Homework:  In attempt to align our curriculum with the Common Core Standards, we are in the process of rewriting our curriculum.  Because of that , it is hard to give due dates as far in advance as I would like. 

So far, Ch. 5 is due on Tuesday 10/15/13.  Students were given the homework last week.  If they cannot find it, it is in the History folder on the right.

In addition to the background Chapter work, there will be readings that we do, as well.  Students may have a few questions to answer from the readings each night.  These will not take very long.

For example, they will need to read a piece on life as a cowboy for homework and answer some questions, due on 10/17.

As we get more developed, I will let you know the due dates.

Ch. 6 will be due on Oct. 24.  We will get that online as soon as we can.
