Online Work for the Day: 3-24-20

Hey all!  New assignments are posted in Classroom...check them out.  Both 7th and 8th have a video to watch made by yours truly.  Not my favorite way to teach, but pretty cool technology!
7th: Your assignment is due this Friday, March, 27th.
8th: Your assignment is due next Friday, April 3rd.  We will have some Hamilton fun as well...more in Classroom in the next couple of days.

Online Work for the Day: 3-19-20

Please refer to Google Classroom for Homework and Instructions
7th had a Islamic World Geography Challenge Reading, Map Activity, and notes
8th has a Google Form Quiz and Essay...all posted on Google Classroom

Be on the lookout...

Online Learning to begin Thursday!  We did a check in class on Friday to be sure you could link up with the TCI site.  We will be using Google Classroom, the TCI online textbook, TCI online notebook, and videos (either made by me or I will send links). I am looking forward to trying out some new stuff...a learning experience for us all!
7th: We will begin a new Lesson in TCI.  
8th: We will have a formal wrap-up of the chapter...not necessarily a test as planned, but a type of closure assignment on Thursday via Google Classroom. Then, we will begin a new lesson.  We will continue with Hamilton, but as you may have guessed, will not be attending the performance.  I am very disappointed and honestly, downright crushed, as some of you may be too, but the theater is closed until April 30th under strict orders from the City of San Francisco.  Money will be refunded. But, using song and theater in learning has been a new way of learning the material, and while some of you enjoy it more than others, it's good to expose all of you to different media in your curriculum.
