Today's class was spent watching the American the Story of Us video - cities. By Thursday you need to have read 574-584.
Today's class was spent discussing the assigned pages in Chapter 25. Remember it needs to be finished by tomorrow.
We started class today by going over last week's Period 4/5 test. Hopefully, you are continuing to develop a process to approach these questions.
We then discussed the second half of Chapter 24. The Chapter 25 Guided Reading was handed out. Pages 539-564 should be read by Monday. Tonight you should work on Friday's LEQ. That January grind keeps rolling on. :)
Today's class was spent analyzing 3 sample Long Essays. In groups, students read and scored each essay using the Long Essay rubric. We then talked about the merits of each essay and the score they earned according to the College Board. Hopefully, this helped continue your understanding of how to write effective and high scoring essays.
Remember that Chapter 24 needs to be finished by tomorrow.
Today's class started with a discussion of Chapter 23. We then had a Type 2 and discussed the assigned Chapter 24 readings. The last part of class was spent working on Friday's LEQ. Remember that the chapter should be finished by Wednesday.
Today's class started with document analysis from the Civil War/Reconstruction review. It seems that people are starting to put the pieces together more effectively.
We then reviewed Periods 4 and 5 in preparation for tomorrow's test. I've included below a sheet that summarizes the political parties through the 19th century if that is something you need help with.
