Weekly Preview: 9/24-9/28, 2012
Fall is here! Enjoy those beautiful leaves and perfect temperatures, and check out what's happening in room 101 this week!
6th GOAL: We've begun our Mock Trial unit. We'll spend several days learning about the American Court System, and then we'll have the background knowledge we need to have some trials of our own!
7th GOAL: We're in the middle of our Big Science: For the Sake of the Nation unit. We're looking at some current issues like pollution, genetic modification, and space exploration. From there, we'll debate what should be the next big push in scientific research by our government.
8th GOAL & 8th Critical Concepts: We're continuing to work on keyboarding skills and fast math practice until the MAP testing program is ready to go. Then, we'll spend 3 class days taking the MAP test to help give teachers, parents, and students an accurate picture of student progress. We'll be taking this test 3 times this year to measure student growth. To learn more about the MAP test, click here (Northwest Evaluation Association's website).
