U.S. History

Team 10 parents,

As we quickly began to move through our Civil War unit, I was once again impressed by your students for their efforts and attitudes towards this whole process. A vast majority of students are continuing to turn in high quality work. Our students are choosing this time to be successful.

With the Civil War (and an Civil War timeline 80% assignment) behind us, we will move in to the era of Reconstruction. This time period lasted from 1865-1877 and focuses on the American South, where many fought for and against the equal treatment of African-Americans. The time period began a spark that lead to the well-known Civil Rights movement in the 1900's.

Afterwards we will move on to see what's out West.


This week, we will finish our lessons on real numbers and begin our study of the Pythagorean Theorem.

This week's online lessons:

Monday--Real numbers study guide

Tuesday--Real numbers quiz (this is an 80% grade)

Wednesday--Introduce the vocabulary & relationships

Thursday--Pythagorean Theorem i-Ready lesson (this one is a 20% grade)

Friday--Finding the hypotenuse length
