Weekly Preview: 1/21-1/25, 2013
I hope you were able to watch a little of the Inauguration footage today. I showed a bit to my classes, and it makes me tear up every time I watch it. So many people excited to be a part of history.. it makes me so proud. Between that and remembering Martin Luther King Jr. today, I'm reminded of the very best of America.
Here's the scoop in room 101 this week:
6th GOAL: We're working hard on science fair projects this week. Hypotheses were due today, and students should do their experiments this week. In class, we're talking about how to professionally contact experts to get more background information, how to make and record good observations, and about how to document all the necessary information for our display boards.
7th GOAL: We're finalizing History Day topics and working hard to research in the library. We'll have two weeks of research before organizing our projects. Titles of projects will have to be finalized by next week so we can get registered for the competition.
8th GOAL & 8th Critical Concepts: We're working on our 4-year plans for high school, examining possible career choices and looking at how high school classes might lead us to those career goals.
