Hope you are having a great Tuesday. Are you ready for the trick or treaters yet? No, neither am I 🙂
Here is a quick update:
P1 and 4: Students are learning about what caused the Great Depression. P1 had time to read the attached article but P4 students will have to finish it tonight for homework (they have a copy in their notes). I have asked the students to try to start reading more actively by annotating (making comments on) the handouts that they receive from me. The margins are great places to write comments, ask questions, make connections (e.g. "This reminds me of…") or even to draw a simple image to help represent an important idea. Also, if you have any insight you can provide to your son or daughter about how investments work (or don’t!) and/or about concepts like recession and prosperity, it would certainly help them to understand what we are discussing in class a bit better.
P2: Talent show buy-in so no homework. We will be looking at westward expansion tomorrow, then we will shift our focus to the causes of the Civil War later in the week.
Have a great evening.
