Student will be completing a group poster project on an Enlightenment philosopher over the next three days and present that thinker to the class on Wednesday.
Unit 2 Test will be given Tuesday, September 12. Students should use their study guide to support their preparation for the test. (My version of the study guide can be found on the unit page. Nevertheless, students should complete their study guide using their own worlds) Particular focus should be given to understanding important concepts like the encomienda system, mercantilism, and the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
On Friday, August 22 students will take their first social studies test. It is a 25 question multiple choice test. The study guide is also worth a test grade. It is an essential tool for preparing for the test. I would also recommend studying the explorers map that should be located on the left hand side of Page 7 in their notebook.
