Humanities: Back on Track

So, we had a weird couple of days before break with snow and snow days and here we go  . . . 

Mr. Dunbar explained the new grade book set up.  There will be more information sent home to your folks AND if they have any questions at all, please encourage them to call and/or email.

After that, we reconnected with Speak.  We used GoSoapbox to do a little surveying of where we are all with the book.  And then Mr. Dunbar ran an activity where we imagined what various characters from the book would say about contemporary issues such as the Olympics and Miley Cyrus.

Mr. Ryder read aloud starting from the beginning of the third marking period, right around page 95 or so.

Presentations on Merryweather High Orientation Proposals are due in class on Tuesday.  There will be no make up on this one.  Either you deliver the presentation to the board and admin, or you do not.
