Homework, 1/12/2017

Math– 5A Workbook pages 148-149, just a bit more practice on multiplying improper fractions before moving on to the next lesson (make sure to simplify your responses and put them in mixed numbers when allowed)


Writing/Social Studies– copied from earlier in the week…Students had plenty of time today to begin writing, and plenty of time during the week to read the article, hopefully they used their time wisely!  This assignment shouldn’t take ‘hours’ to complete- if you’re having trouble, make sure you put in an effort and we’ll discuss it tomorrow.  Thanks!

I’d like to continue w/ the sarcophagus project tomorrow as well as practice working on/researching for our PowerPoint presentations during class time.

  • Assignment due on FRIDAY.  We’ve discussed at length now how to include factual information in essay form, this assignment will be more practice on the concept.  
  • Read the following article posted below. Have the students set up a new page in their notebooks and properly label the page with the day’s date and the title of the newspaper article and the title of the assignment.
  • Hi-Lite, underline or write on separate paper w/ a proper heading 7+ notes on the reading above.
  • Read the above primary document from 1923 and write a short 4-5 paragraph reflection on the reading. Use dates, names, quotes, and geographic locations in your response, the basic tenets of non-fiction writing that we’ve been discussing all 2nd quarter.  Be sure not to plagiarize, put everything (except quotes) in your own words.
  • Who are the main people involved and when/where is this article set? Using ‘their’ words, what did they find?  What is the name of the newspaper that this original article was published in?  Why was the discovery of King Tut’s tomb so memorable and important not just to Egyptian history, but to world history in general?  What does Tut’s tomb tell us about the lives of Ancient Egyptians at that time?  What doesn’t it tell us? 

Think about these questions when writing your short 4-5 paragraph essay response and be sure to use your own words when citing information other than quotes.
