This past week we took the Ch. 8 Test, learned about voting and elections, and worked on Ch. 9. Throughout this lots of good notes were taken, good discussions had, as well as good writing about elections. All Ch. 9 work will be completed Monday, with the test, work turn in (Graphic Orgs and Ch. 9 UMIs), and voting to be commenced on Tuesday.
Wednesday through next Monday we will be going over Ch. 10. The work for the week will be the 4 Ch. 10 Graphic Organizers (due next Tuesday), Ch. 10 Understanding Main Ideas (UMIs) and Reviewing Themes (RTs) (due next Tuesday), reading the chapter, taking notes, doing some Warm Ups (#s 21-25 are due next Wednesday), and some other good stuff as well.
While many are doing great work, the Ch. 8 Test and work were substandard for many. There were lots of good grades that are starting to slowly fall apart. Please make sure that you are not procrastinating, bringing your A game to class as much as possible, leave the distractions at the door, and do the best work that you physically can!!! I have seen too many people talk too much, play on phones too much, do work for other classes when USH work should be done, and a lot of other stuff that is not making some successful. Hopefully this ends soon!!! There will be some change(s) this week that will hopefully result in people being put in position for more success (remember that's all your teacher wants). Hopefully this week will be fun!
UPDATE!!!: Don't forget if you need it, the Ch. 9 stuff is a couple of posts below. And the upcoming work for Ch. 10, a packet (Called Ch. 10 highlighting study guide packet, or something-ish of that) is on the Google Drive. ALL good stuff from, and for, what we are doing is on the Google Drive (loving that thing!!!).
P.S. DO NOT FORGET TO BE READING THE CHAPTERS!!! THERE'S A REASON THAT THIS MESSAGE IS IN ALL CAPS!!! ITS NOT BECAUSE EVERYONE IS DOING THE READING(S)!!!
