ECON: Tuesday and Wednesday, 17-18, 2012

I am going to tell you to look at this post (as promised you will find this blog useful to you). You are going to use this time to make sure your stock project is up to date AND to type out anything needed for your restaurant project. Do not waste your time. I am going to check your stock project AND restaurant project progress later in the week for grades, as well as a binder check. When we get back to class Thursday we are starting up Ch. 1 in full (do not forget your book). If you waste your time today and tomorrow your grade will be negatively affected. Please get as much done as you can. I'll post more if needed.

Stupid Weather!!!

Well this has been an interesting day with a/c and rain issues causing some problems. Your teacher is very understanding and will leave today (Monday) as a wash. Whatever you accomplished today (US HIST - getting the vocab and venn diagram and ECON - finishing up the goal setting project) is all good, no worries. Tomorrow, though, we start fresh and I expect you to be ready to work seeing as we had a not as productive day as we should have had. Rest up, stay dry, and have a good evening!

US HIST: Week of Jan 3, 2012

Welcome to our Spring Semester of US History! We are going to pick up where we left off last semester. We are going to go start with the information that we did not get to in chapters 13-14 (there will be a short review quiz on the second day of classes). The bulk of the work this semester will be reading the chapters, doing the Understanding Main Ideas and Reviewing the Themes at the end of each chapter, Graphic Organizers, vocabulary, a couple of projects, quizzes, and tests. You need your textbook EVERYDAY! I will be looking for books on Wednesday (the first grade of the 6-weeks is a book check). Please know that your teacher is very excited and has planned lots of great things for you! Remember to work hard, come to class prepared, read the text and any handouts, and study the material and you will be successful this semester! There will be lots of work, but if you work with me and do not procrastinate, you will not be overloaded and will accomplish great things! Welcome back!

ECON: Week of Jan 3, 2012

Welcome to Economics! Government was very interesting and now its time to switch things up! Our first week will include a see what you know quiz, starting two projects (stock buying and opening a restaurant), and starting chapter 1 in our textbook. You need to get your textbook ASAP! One of the first grades that I will take is a book check. I am extremely excited about this class! Economics is a great class to help start preparing to be an adult! Be prepared for a great semester!

Welcome... Back and to Our 2nd Semester!

We are all back Tuesday! We will hit the floor running and get some good work done! As was the case last semester, this class should be easy! The work is not hard. Pay attention, take good notes, come to class prepared, read the text and handouts, bring required materials, work hard, and do not procrastinate and you will have no problems (I know so many of you work extremely hard!!! - I just have to say it). I hope that all my classes find the material interesting! I have worked hard and prepared a lot of good things! I am very excited for our Spring Semester and I hope that you are too!
