General Info: this is a great time to revisit your discovery education account and make sure that you can still sign on. also a great time to revisit your powerschools account (homebase) so that you can monitor your grades 24/7 from your home computer. If you have any questions or issues with powerschools please contact guidance. I would also suggest that you start to think about the required PBL (project based learning) topic " by using historical evidence and opinion, do you think that war is inevitable" You will need to use either an IPad, a cell phone or any device that can record and edit movies - talk with your parents and see if they will either allow you to create a youtube channel or better yet (so they can monitor your online usage) can they create a youtube channel under their name and log in - your final product will be a video displayed for the school to watch and give you feedback on your empirical research, due to the size of the final video youtube will be the easiest option so others can view it all at once but again I would suggest your parents help you edit, record, upload and control all features of the video - just my opinion. Finally remember that now that we are in the third marking period we are attempting to get your work to resemble more of an 8th grade quality and grading criteria - you can expect fewer graded assignments - the good: fewer graded assignments, the bad: that means each assignment counts for more and there are less chances to help your average if you do poorly on an assignment.
