Parents, Weebly's website access has been down this week so far, forgive me for not updating it sooner than weds. The test on discovery education was marking a question incorrect until today, if your student took the exam prior to Thursday morning, that score will be updated on powerschools, it will not effect your average negatively. Thank you for your understanding, I'm sorry the server was down until today, one of those things that is out of my control.
Monday: Intro new unit on colonization, give all notebook sheets
Tuesday: School Wide Pathdriver Test (all social studies students meet in the computer lab room 118 - this test does have audio instruction and voice over assistance on some questions so please bring your earphones if you want to take advantage of that during the exam) Pathdriver is not graded and allows the county to gauge a student's progress throughout the year in reading and math, I was just told to bring the students to it I don't score the exam or get any results.
Wednesday: Go over vocabulary, students use the unit essential questions to work with partners to answer (responses will be compared at the end of the unit to see if opinions change at all)
Thursday: laptop research in our class, bring earphones just in case any of the sites you visit have educational videos
Friday: if we can get the laptops again today we will finish research, otherwise The Lost Colony Roanoke Island, the true story of Sir Walter Raleigh, In Search of: The Lost Colony
Homework: please take your unit 1 exam on discoveryeducation.com by thursday night at the latest it is labeled as "age of exploration quiz - due 7/31/15" make sure you take this version
