For the Week of December 10, 2018
This is the final week to achieve much in the way of progress, so here are the main things I will expect this week:
8th Grade Social Studies: Biography on Ben Franklin is due at the beginning of class on Monday, Dec. 10. We will then spend the rest of this period preparing for a movie that is historically based and will be the source of much information on our upcoming test on Chapter 7 (slated for the third quarter). This movie is called "1776" and it is a perennial favorite in my classes.
8th Grade Religion: Service hours are due Wednesday, December 12, NO EXCEPTIONS! I will also be wrapping up my lectures on Salvation History on Monday and Tuesday and will hand out a take-home test on Wednesday. This test is due back to me on Friday, December 14 at the beginning of the period. In the meantime, we will spend our classroom time watching an interesting and educational video from Expedition Unknown on the Travel Channel about the Lost Ark of the Covenant. We will follow this up with an important video "The Mysteries of the Holy Rosary" just in time for the Christmas break.
7th Grade Religion: We will work on our Advent Mosaics all week long, with some seasonal music and videos thrown in.
7th Grade Social Studies: We will continue to work on our Chapter 2 Reading Guides together on Monday and Tuesday, then a study guide and review on Wednesday before taking the Chapter 2 test on Kansas History of Thursday. From there, we will move into Chapter 3 in Kansas History on Friday.
Mr. Talavera will visit all of my religion classes for the final appearance this semester on Thursday.
