    6th and 7th Grade World History

    Evaluate: to judge to determine the significance, worth, or quality of something

     

    Write a paragraph evaluating your 4th quarter project. Be sure to answer all the following questions:

    1. How much time did you put into this project? (NOT including the time spent researching. Just the time creating the actual product)

    2. How much did you learn?

    3. Approximately when did you start working on the project (again, not the research, just the time creating the final product)? Approximately when did you finish?

    4. Did you put forth your best effort? Why or why not?

    5. Grade yourself.  What grade do you think you earned on this project? Explain to me why you think you earned this grade. Be honest; it will not affect how I grade the project. 

     Make sure your write this in paragraph form, using complete sentences. Don't start sentences with "Yes" "No" or "Because." The paragraph should flow and make sense to anyone reading it, even if they did not have access to the questions that were asked. 

    Make sure to get this to me before the end of the day Wednesday. We may not have any time in class together due to Kindergarten Graduation, so make sure you put your paragraph in my box in the office, or get it to me sometime during the day.   

     

  • Geography 4th Quarter Projects: Reminders and Resources

    Visuals:

    -this can be a Powerpoint, Prezi, Video, Poster, Tri-fold Presentation Board, or any other creative visual you can think of

    -there is not a specific number of visuals needed, but there are specific categories of information needed. Check your packet for that information.  

     

    Brochure Resources:

    -a Word Doc template has been attached to this blog post. Remember that attachments appear at the very bottom of posts, in tiny text, under the date

    -Here is information on how to create a brochure using Google Docs.  https://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Brochure-Using-Google-Docs 

    -Go to the following websites for downloadable templates and/or instructions for making a brochure in Powerpoint: 

    -https://templates.office.com/en-us/Business-tri-fold-brochure-TM03112830 

    -https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/make-trifolds-powerpoint-2603.html

    -https://templates.office.com/en-us/Brochures  <--This website has templates for various Office softwares. I personally think that Powerpoint is the easiest program for the sake of design, but that is entirely up to you. 

    ***I also emailed a Brochure Template to the email address that was last  used to send me something, whether it is your personal email address of that of a parent/guardian 

    Make sure to include all the required information.  Check the packet for details about what information should be included.  

     

    Stamp: 

    Below are step-by-step instructions for creating a stamp using Powerpoint. Again, I prefer designing things in Powerpoint because it is easier to layer and manipulate elements of the design, and put them where you want them to go.  However, you are not required to use any particular program or method to create any of your visuals. I just wanted you to have access to this possibility, which is the one I discussed in class. 

     1.  Open Powerpoint

    2.  Go to --> File --> Page Setup 

    3. Change the dimensions of the page to approximately 1 inch by 1 inch. You can take some liberties with the size. It DOES need to be small--remember that on the day of the World Hop everyone will get 6 stamps on their passport. However, 1.5 by 1.5 would probably be fine.  Or, if you don't want to create a square stamp, you could make your stamp 1x2 or 2x1. 

    4.  Design your stamp however you want using photographs, text, clipart, etc. 

    5. When you are satisfied with your design, save it. 

    6. In addition to saving the Powerpoint, you will want save the slide you created as a image file. To do this, go to File --> Export. At the bottom of the window that pops up, you will clip on the scroll down menu and find/select JPEG. 

    7. Once your stamp has been saved as a JPEG, you can insert 6 copies of the image file into a Word Document, and print your stamps from there.  

     

     

    Bring your packet to school. You will need to turn it in so that I can use the rubrics within the packet to grade your papers and the other parts of the project!

  • American Literature HW (Tues. April 23)

    The following 2 assignments should be completed on the piece of notebook paper that you did your last dialectical journal on. 

    - We discussed in class that when Beatty said "Old Montag wanted to fly near the sun..." he is referencing Icarus from Greek mythology.  Read about the story of Icarus to find out what he was up to, what his goals were, why he was doing what he was doing.  Then think about Montag in F451.  How does the allusion tie in with, or expand, the text at this point? How apt is Beatty's choice of allusion?

    -Complete a dialectical journal entry for Friday's reading (page 106-page break on 123).  This time, make sure you write at least 3 sentences of response, and include more than just questions about the text.  


     

    Symbolism: 

    Take a look at the list of POTENTIAL symbols we discussed in class. Write down ANY ideas you have for what those characters, events, or objects could represent. You should even write down ideas you are unsure of. 

     

    Here are some hints and tips for thinking about potential symbolism:  https://www.enotes.com/topics/how-analyze-symbolism

    Key points:

    - There is some connection or resemblance between the symbol and what it represents.  Thing about the characteristics of your potential symbol; what is something that has similar characteristics?

    -If something is repeated or mentioned a lot, it is very likely to be a symbol.
