Quick Blog Entry for a Quick Week

This week will only feature a two day week. With the shortened week, it is my hope that students take advantage to reflect this weekend on what they need to do to continue their progress from First Trimester or take stock on what needs to be done in the Second Trimester.

The 7th graders will have nightly homework this week in Social Studies, revolving around the reading of chapter 6, sections 2 and 3. This will set students up for the Chapter 6 Exam which will take place on Thursday, 12/1. Student extra credit reflection sheets are due at the start of Monday's class.

The 8th graders will have to finalize all of their Wiki Posts on Marx and Smith by Tuesday night at 6:00 PM. This will set students up for the reading of Howard Zinn's article, "Robber Barons and Rebels" when we return from break. Students should be prepared to be reading chunks of Zinn's writing on a nightly basis.

It is my hope that students can use the upcoming weekend to gear up strength and resolve for the arduous challenges in Social Studies that will lie ahead.

All best.
Mr. Kannan
