Wow! We are really getting crunched for time this week.
As we continue to study Salvation History this week, I need to make room in the schedule for two other lessons.
On Monday, we will discuss the criteria for the students to write their letters to Father Orr for admission to Bishop Carroll next year. I will explain the format and concept in religion class and Mr. Buchanan has agreed to allow students to write their letters in computer classes this week. The letters themselves are due in the SEAS office December 1.
Also in religion, I will discuss the Stewardship Poster contest this week, probably on Wednesday. All students are expected to participate in this endeavor as a means of promoting awareness of the role of stewardship in the Diocese of Wichita.
In history, we will wrap up our study of English colonization of America and plunge headlong into the French and Indian War and the conditions leading up to the American Revolution. These are some of my favorite stories of American history and I believe they are crucial to our understanding of our roles as U.S. citizens. More notes and stories to follow, plus workbook assignments and readings to be explained as the week advances.
Finally, we will break for Thanksgiving at the end of the week. When we return, it will be pretty much pedal to the metal in both classes, so any lack of understanding that might linger at the end of the week will need to be addressed. Any student who feels confused or lost is encouraged to come see me and we'll address these matters together. I want everyone to be on the same page as much as possible, so if you need better explanations about anything, please let me know.
