    Sorry for missing last week's post.  I was down and out with the stomach bug.  Since I did miss 3 days last week, I have decided to forgo the test that was going to be on Thursday.  Instead, I will provide feedback and grades through the refugee assignments we are finishing up this week.  This week we will continue to study refugees.  More specifically, we will continue to study the Syrian Refugee Crisis.

     

    Test corrections are officially due on June 7th.  All tests have been returned for some time so please make sure to finish those up this week if you wan credit for them.

    After learning that we wouldn't have the laptops this week, I made some changes to the flow of this unit.  Last week we actually looked at women's rights (specifically the rights of refugee girls).  This week we will finish our study of the Universal Human Rights and then begin looking at Labor Rights.

    On Monday, we will finish up our unit of Human Rights with a look at a documentary called Girl Rising.  We will preview a few clips about girls around the world who are facing personal struggle and still fighting for their rights and the rights of others.  The remainder of the week gets a bit busy. On Tuesday, we will have classroom guidance with Mrs. Deen.  On Wednesday, students will be taking a pilot test for the district with the SPLASH Dash in the afternoon.  On Thursday, we will be going on our field trip and it's track out day!

    Last week we finish studying two examples of genocide in Sudan and Rwanda.  We also spent some time talking about refugees - specifically the Lost Boys of Sunday.  This week we will continue our study of refugees.  We will also begin to look at the rights of women and how have they changed/grown/decreased over time.
