    History Project Research Questions:  Each group must give at least one paper, typed or handwritten that answers their project questions in detail.  The link below shows the questions for ALL of the groups.  You need to search for the specific group questions.  Each group has a half page of questions, but should be written on a separate sheet of paper.

    Math Packet 1 for Unit 3.  Links for invididual lessons are under the math tools tab.

    Due Soon

    Bibliographies for each project.  Project must have at minimum 5 sources but should have closer to 10 sources.  The sources have to come from a variety of types.  Having all sources come from the internet will lower the grade in that rubric area.  Videos found on the internet by National Geographic, Discovery Education or History Channel count as video sources, not internet sources.

    Policy for Unfinished Work

    When we track back on, there will be a renewed focus making students complete their work and put forth their best effort.  Occasionally homework will be given out to specific students because they did not stay on task when we were going over important concepts in class.  I will be sending out targeted mass emails to the parents of those students when it is required.  As a grade level we do not give out that much homework , but the underlying assumption there is that when students are in class, they are making 100% effort to understand and complete assignments.
