Language Arts: Students will be revising and editing their Biography papers all week. Biography Final Drafts due Friday, February 8. I am also introducing the Novel Project options on Monday. Students choose the book (must be recent and challenging) and the project. Students will have some time in class to work on these projects, but the expectation is that some of it is also completed outside of class. Novel Projects are due Friday, March 22, with checkpoints in the following 6 weeks. We will be doing backwards planning tomorrow in their planners for these checkpoints, working back from the due date in March.
Social Studies: Students will be working on their summative Timebook project in class to demonstrate what they have learned about West African kingdoms during the Middle Ages. African Timebook pages are due Wednesday, February 6.
