The Party Gets Started... and an exam to boot!

For the seventh graders, it's a Constitution Exam all the way down. I can only wish them the best of luck on it throughout. There will be a study session on Wednesday of this week, if anyone needs assistance.

For the eighth graders, the pain of World War I is supplanted by the horrific shallowness of The 1920s: The Jazz Age. With World War I Primary Source Assessments due at 9:00 AM, students must make sure that these are ready to be submitted and then begin their study of the Jazz Age. Students will have nightly assignments as we learn the joys, pains, and sorrows of a party that seemed like it would never end, but actually did.

For all students, extra credit from the blog expires on Tuesday at 6:00 PM.

8th Graders: Here is the link to the bag of 1920s video clips and then, here is the link to edmodo.

Nothing but the best to you all as the pain of pressure and core of nothingness becomes evident to all,
