- Our class will continue their study of the U.S. Constitution, with a focus on the Bill of Rights (first ten amendments). Quizzes on the Bill of Rights will be on Thursdays. Students have a study guide and notecards to study from. Our studies this week will consist of looking more closely at the Constitution, whilst also covering the branches of government.
- Students have Roots 11 quiz today, and they should study them a few minutes each evening. They will have Roots 12 next week and should be studying.
- Students chose from Last Dance on Holliday Street, about a young lady who goes in search of her mother in Colorado during the early 1800s, or The Legend of Bass Reeves, based on a black sheriff named Bass Reeves in the old west. They will have daily assignments that will go along with their readings. These are homework if not completed in class.
Our class is beginning their study of the U.S. Constitution, with a focus on the Bill of Rights (first ten amendments). Quizzes on the Bill of Rights will begin next week; Thursdays. Students will receive a study guide and have already taken a practice quiz. Our studies this week will consist of reviewing Shay’s Rebellion, the Constitutional Convention, and how states should be represented in government through different compromises and plans. We will then continue on to the three branches of government and their main functions.
Students have Roots 9 quiz tomorrow, and they should study them a few minutes each evening. They will have Roots 1-9 next week.
Those who have not received 100% will continue to study the U.S. map and will be tested each Thursday. All others may take it if they so choose. Any student with a consistent 100% will no longer be required to take the quizzes.
Book Project is DUE Friday, January 15th.
This is just the overview of what we are covering each week. Students and parents are encouraged to ask questions if class is missed or if there needs to be clarification on anything.
