I try to avoid missing any class time throughout the year, but a conference on Incorporating Current Events seemed very interesting. I try to make connections to other time periods when I teach and I would really like to increase the connections to Current Events. One of the speakers was Terrence Roberts. His story was incredible and he has such a positive outlook on life. It was an incredible 90 minute presentation.
While I was gone, students worked on their homework for the week:
Wednesday, November 29, 2017: Compromise of 1850 V.G., Dred Scott V.G.
Thursday, November 30, 2017: “Bleeding Kansas” V.G.
Friday, December 1, 2017: Chapter 13 Video Guide, Chapter 13 Vocab Quiz, Chapter 13 Key Questions (An assignment I created where students have to answer questions based on the information from Chapter 13.)
Have a great night!
