American History Class Trip to Boston

Our annual American History Class trip to Boston is coming up, and we could use your help with this. The trip is going to cost about $350 per student. The cost covers transportation, hotel, admission to the museums, and food. The students will have the opprotunity to explore the city and buy souvenirs. We need volunteers to chaperone as well as to help organize fundraisers. The cost of the chaperones is figured into the cost of the students. If you would like to help out, please let me know in what way you would like to participate.

Projects, assignments, and such related items.

Our class blog project will be coming to a close next month. If you have not had a chance to check out our blog, you can do so at http://historygeek1588.posterous.com/. The students have really gotten into it and their responses have been awesome!

Their research projects are due in two weeks. They have been given a rubric to follow and should be editing their papers. If there are any questions or concerns, feel free to contact me.

The students have done a great job with keeping up with their homework. I know the year is coming to a close and things are starting to wind down. Please continue to encourage the students to finish out the year with a positive attitude and to keep up the great work!
