- 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 this week; Thursdays. Students will receive a study guide and have already taken a practice quiz. Our studies this week and next will consist of reviewing the three branches of government and their main functions.
- Students have Roots 1-9 quiz tomorrow, and they should study them a few minutes each evening. They will have Roots 10 next week, followed by 11 on the 26th.
- On the 18th, we begin our in-class Westward choice novel. Students will choose 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.
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.
