Next week you will be taking the interim assessment (Monday EVEN Tuesday ODD). Attached here is a Study Guide that you can use to look over information to prepare for the test. As I said in class, I am going to grade the exam but will create a grading scale after the results are available.
As we come to the end of the second grading period, we need to finalize overdue assignments. All late assignments need to be submitted by midnight Sunday, January 11. No late work will be accepted after that time.
Hope you are all enjoying the break! Sorry for the confusion over Edgenuity 2.9. In the gradebook 2.10 is listed as the correct assignment. Please complete 2.10. The due date for 2.10 will be adjusted for this confusion.
Enjoy the rest of the winter vacation!
In My Big Campus you will find and assignment that requires you to compare the two major political parties in this country. Use www.democrats.org and www.gop.com to answer the questions. At Democrats.org, click on the ISSUES tab at the top of the page. At GOP.com, click on PLATFORM and select the appropriate section. Write up to four (4) sentences for each issue. Concentrate ONLY on what each party believes, not on criticism of their opponents.
DUE by Monday December 15
We will begin working on a Document Based Question in class. It is an essay question in which you use support from documents provided to you in the question to support your answer. This first assignment is a simple one in which you are evaluating the evidence and writing to inform your reader. The first part of the assignment is to answer the questions associated with the documents. I will be handing out those questions in class, but will post the packet here for you to read through in case you lose it.
The responses to the documents is due on MONDAY 12/1 for EVEN and TUESDAY 12/2 for ODD.
The finished essay is due MONDAY 12/8 ODD and TUESDAY 12/9 EVEN
The finished essay must be typed. It must be in the standard format: Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double spaced, with 1 inch margins.
The test on Monday (ODD) Tuesday (EVEN) will cover the Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, and the Federalists vs. the Anti-Federalists. Here are the notes for the Declaration of Independence if you were not able to access them from your One Drive account in the portal.
EDGENUITY: The 1.3 - Colonial Concerns grades have been posted. REMEMBER: If you complete an Edgenuity module, you MUST email me to let me know what you have made up. I am not automatically regrading assignments after I have posted the grades.
Please note that all due dates are for 11:59 p.m. on Friday. The last assignment will be applied to the third grading period although it will be assigned during the last week of this grading period. If you know that your are going to be out of town or are going to be busy during a particular week, please make arrangements to complete your assignment before the due date.
Most problems that students encounter with the program have to do with their connection speed or their computer, not Edgenuity. However, if you do encounter a problem, email me ASAP with the specific problem (NOT: It doesn't work or It won't let me...). I can then try to figure out what the problem is or I can pass it on to Edgenuity. Do not wait unitl Friday afternoon to let me know there is a problem.
DO NOT WAIT UNTIL FRIDAY AFTERNOON TO DO YOUR WORK!!! Edgenuity takes time and you have work for other classes to do as well. You should work on Edgenuity for 30-45 minutes per day, every day. If you do, you will never be overwhelmed with homework.
The modules have been assigned to each of you. Each week, including breaks, modules will be due on Friday. We will complete them in the order that we have covered the concept in class, beginning with benchmark 1.9 - Rule of Law. This benchmark, along with 2.2 will be due on Friday 10/31 by midnight.
NO TEST. REGULAR SCHEDULE NEXT WEEK.
Finish EDGENUITY 1.9 and 2.2 for next week. Both due 10/31.
If you didn't finish typing the notes here is the PPT we were using. Please note that you need to identify from where in the Declaration the quotes appear.
