Weekly Preview: 10/1-10/5, 2012
I can't believe it's October. Here in Iowa, the leaves are GORGEOUS. I don't know if I've ever seen them prettier. Enjoy the lovely fall weather, and check out the news for room 101:
6th GOAL: This class is revving up for Mock Trial. We'll spend the first part of the week learning more about the American judicial system and the differences between criminal and civil cases. Then, we'll read about the details of our first case, assign parts, and prep for our first mock trial.
7th GOAL: This class is still talking about Big Science. We've had some deep and interesting discussions (my favorite part of GOAL classes), especially on the topics of space exploration and the size of the universe. This week, we'll look into genetic research and the possibilities it holds. Then, we'll start debating about what we think is best for our country.
8th GOAL & 8th Critical Concepts: These classes will be taking the MAP test this week. The technology is finally ready for us to begin. We'll be testing on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. On Wednesday and Friday, students will brush up again on Type to Learn and Fast Math programs.
