Parents, please check StudentVue/ParentVue to see where your student's grade currently stands. The progress reporting period ends November 10 and that date is rapidly approaching. If your student needs to retake the Exploration and Imperialism Quiz, he/she must complete and turn in the study guide by Friday. The quiz retake is also on Friday. Students can use resources that are posted on this blog as study tools.
Students who did not turn in the Guest Speaker notes on the nuclear energy presentation may make that assignment up with one of the projects here. If you choose option #1, then you may use these nuclear energy notes to complete that option. This recovery project is due no later than Monday, November 7.
Several students have not turned in the Read and Respond that was assigned last week for homework. Students need to turn it in as soon as possible in order to earn partial credit. Please check StudentVue/ParentVue to see what assignments your student has turned in and which ones need to be made up.
This week students will continue learning about the intra-war years (the years between World War I and World War II). They will learn about the Treaty of Versailles, worldwide depression, and the rise of Nazism. Later this week we will start a DBQ project asking the question, "How did the Treaty of Versailles help to cause World War II?" Students will analyze several documents to uncover information about the connection between the treaty and World War II. Students will earn classwork grades, a quiz grade, and a test grade over the course of the project. We plan to wrap up the project next Friday, November 4.
