Ms. Naze: At the end of each month, TeenBiz is updated to show student progress. We will be looking at that next week Monday and recording progress in student planners. The goal is to get a 75% or better on their assignment. The activities done at school count toward their assessment levels, so we will complete our Teen Biz activities at school. They may continue to work on articles at home. Our goal is to finish one over break at 100%. We will be completing our narratives this week and working on Number the Stars discussions as well.
