Students, Tuesday and Wednesday we will be learning about the Holocaust that took place before and during WWII. Please prepare yourselves by reading and prepping for a somber activity. We will define, discuss, debate, and determine how something like this occurred. Be ready by reading the info found online and in our textbook. This needs to be completed by the next class period (Tues. Jan 15th for A Day, Wed. Jan 16th for B Day).
Take a look at the Progressivism unit and make sure you feel comfortable with the info we've been covering. Below is the guiding question that you will want to be able to answer with the rubric that should be used when answering.
Identify and describe three specific goals of the Progressive Movement. Were these three goals accomplished? If so, how were they accomplished? If not, what prevented the goal from being realized?
Here's the plan today:
Here's the plan today . . .
1. Watch the "How to DBQ" video as a class. Everyone take a few notes as we'll discuss it more on Friday.
2. Either keep working with getafive.com or go to Kahn Academy to review using that site. You can also take a look at the Test Prep tab from the menu on this website . . . it's a work in progress but there's some good stuff on there to help various learning styles.
3. With 10 minutes left in class, watch the "How to LEQ" video as a class . . . notes just like the first one.
4. Friday plan on working on your writing skills, we'll go over both the DBQ and the LEQ.

The end of the term is this Friday, May 9th. I will be out of town Thursday and Friday of this week (sorry about the timing) so that means that all work needs to be in by Wednesday afternoon. If there is a crazy circumstance where you can't get me your late work by Wednesday please get ahold of me and let me know your situation. I will be able to communicate with you all if you're subscribed to my Reminders, if you respond to the texts that I send out then I'll be able to text you back.
All US History students will need to bring their Notebooks to class both tomorrow and Wednesday so I can look through them and give you a grade on them. If you have further questions please contact me.
