This Week In Social Studies
When thinking about the Religion's Unit, remember the focus is on the development and growth of religions as related to politics, economics, and society/culture. This graphic organizer may help with this analysis.
Civics and Economics
Keep in mind the latter part of this unit looks at minority groups and the rise of traditional versus modern views. Booker T. Washington's "Atlanta Compromise" speech is a great talking point for this. And, Tripp Jeffers shared a constructed response to use with this. Check it out here.
Up Coming PD
Ashbrook: Teaching American History
Message from Melissa
I hope that things are going well for you. My world has been consumed by elementary stuff recently but it seems like the veil may be lifted soon. And, I will be all yours! I am working hard on my goal of visiting all of you. Last week I assisted ELA in delivering PD to the staff at Mount Tabor. So, a quick shout out to my Tabor peeps!
As always, please let me know if you need anything.
