Writing– Context Clues worksheet, attached below…
Today I collected the students first research papers on the topic of westward expansion. I collected their notes and the two version of their essays (they wrote a rough draft, then they were given some advice on how to improve it, we did some peer editing, and last night I asked them to rewrite certain parts so they could see that there is no one way to construct a paper). I will grade this assignment once for submission and then again using a rubric score for more significant grade to reflect the hard work and effort they put into it. I understand this is their first foray into informational writing/research papers and so I will adjust the numbers accordingly. Thanks for your patience and understanding at home!
Social Studies– our Projects have been pushed back until Monday, November 21st, for a few different reasons. Please take the added time to make any additions/improvements to your work. Thanks!
