Reminder, Rough Drafts are due IN CLASS on April 20th. If students do not have their rough drafts, they will be doing an alternate activity, which will be another essay. 7th Grade This week we will be wrapping up ‘the rise of the dictators’ and taking a quiz. We will start on the causes of WWII which involves a bit of review, so students, be prepared for more balloons. All students must be signed up with a turnitin.com account by Wednesday, April 6th. This is Homework. If there are any difficulties, I would be more than happy to assist students and parents after school on Tuesday, April 5th. Students will be doing “rise of the dictators face book posts” (Not actually on facebook, please students, you will get worksheets) which are also due Wednesday, April 6th. I tend to turn into a major geek when talking about WWII as my grandfather served in the war. As always, parents are more than welcome to drop in and just enjoy the lesson. We all deserve to be students once in a while.   8th Grade We will be wrapping up the Civil Rights Unit and transitioning to Social/Environmental Activism.
