         6/9/20:  Tuesday! Hope all is well with you & your family.  Continue to e-mail me with any questions or concerns. Office hours are from 9-10 in the morning and 12-1 in the afternoon.   In order to be fair to those meeting deadlines late policies will continue to be in effect this week (10 points off for each day late).  Be sure to read e-mails carefully for assignment requirements and hand in assignments on time!

     

    1. Since CNN 10 is done for the summer you will have to go to cnn.com or another website of your choosing and write your facts & summary based on one or more topic or article.  You could also watch a news broadcast on the internet or tv if you would like or read a newspaper. 

     

    1. Since the start of the semester & the start of remote learning we have focused our attention on Asia (Chapter 12 & Chapter 19 Sections 2 &3), Renaissance / Reformation (Chapter 17) & the Age of Exploration (Chapter 19 Section 1 & Chapter 20).  Today you will look at an individual from each time period that we have studied & explain their importance individually & as they compare to eachother:
    2. Write 2-3 sentences explaining who the most important person is for each of the 3 topics of study. 
    3. Rank the individuals on the line before your explanation (1= most important, 3= least important).
    4. Write 2-3 sentences explaining why you made your choice for #1 person.

    Example:

    -------: _________ is the most important person when it comes to studying Asia because…

    ------: _________ is the most important person when it comes to studying the Renaissance/Reformation because…

    -------: _________ is the most important person when it comes to studying the Age of Exploration because…

    All 3 these individuals are important to the past and should be studied by us & future generations.  I feel that the most important person out of these 3 is…

    4. Absentees: a. See me for make-up work as soon as you return to class.
    5. You will have the same number of days to make up an assignment                        as you were absent.

                            *It is your responsibility to ask for make-up work!

                     

    ->V. Tests / Quizzes / Projects

    1. I do not like or believe in pop tests or quizzes, you will never have one in my class.

                                                               *Studying right before the quiz / test is handed                                                                 out should not be your study method, it won’t                                                                                                                                          work!

    *Quizzes/Tests may only be taken/re-taken during SERA.
