Social Studies

8th Grade - We will be completing a very short final project for U.S. History.  The 8th graders will be allowed to choose ANY large U.S. History topic to write a poem about.  I look forward to reading them.


In 8th Grade, we will take a quick look at light.  No major tests or assignments this week! 

Language Arts


No assignments in literature or in vocabulary were given throughout the last two weeks so that students could use that extra time to work on the Multiple Genre Historical Narratives project.   Through it, students will capture a moment in history, relating it in three narrative forms rather than through an essay:  dialogue (finished); a fine arts option-- poem, song, or original piece of artwork (finished); and a perspective option-- a journal entry, letter, or news article (due Tuesday, May 26th).  I explained it to the 8th grade this way:  this project is replacing a research paper, relating the research in a unique way.  Just as they wouldn't write a paper that repeats itself, the genres, too, will show a different portion of the event.  Just as they would in a paper, each genre will reveal the facts they have researched.  Videos were given to explain each part as well as Hangouts were offered for discussion and questions.  I am very much looking forward to reading these!


The final test will go live on Tuesday morning.  Students need to block off about 2 hours to complete by Thursday at midnight.  More specific instructions were given in an email last week and will be in Google Classroom

God's Peace,
