Language Arts

It's almost the end of our first nine weeks! Students will turn in their final essays on Monday (they will have half the class period to complete any final touches). We will begin our new unit focuing on Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. We will study the historical context and explore issues of identity and prejudice. This is a rich text with so many oppotunities to learn and connect to today's world.

U.S. History

This week in U.S. History we pretended to be justices on the Supreme Court and analyzed a Supreme Court case a part of an 80% assignment. It is called Bill of RIghts common assessment and it was due today. The last day to turn it in is next Friday. For the rest of the week we studied the 3 branches of government and the seperation of powers.
