A test will be given on Friday, February 10 on the contents of Unit 7. This will cover not only the historical events surrounding the rise of totalitarianism, the holocaust and World War 2, but also their ability to apply their understanding of propaganda. Students should therefore know the materials in their notebook: propaganda (35), Vocabulary (36), Timeline (38), and the Vocab supplement (40). The test will be multiple choice. "Guilty" (39) is the form questions will be asked to evaluate their understanding of propaganda.
The "Ibn Battuta" assignment to raise test grades is due Friday, September 8.
Notebook will be collected for a grade on Monday, September 12. There also will be a test that day covering the Age of Exploration materials.
Interim grades are due at the end of the week and students will have six grades in powerschools. Two grades are from the work students did with the long-term substitute and are posted now
1. Students need to complete any unfinished work in their interactive student notebooks--creating a title page, updating the table of contents and finalizing the classwork. Students can find the table of contents information here.
2. Students will create a timeline event for their assigned topic that contributes to our inquiry into why the age of exploration happened. For further information see the assignment description here. This is building on the research students have done for primary and secondary sources on our class wiki. If that work has not been completed, this is your opportunity to complete that.
