Pre-Algebra: Today I needed to get 2nd and 7th hours back on the same page. We had a fire drill during 2nd hour, so class time was cut short. 7th hour was behind on their notes from yesterday, so they got caught up. Somehow it all worked out! The homework is Fluency Practice for Topic 1. We actually started the assignment together during class. The students had to write the equations on a separate sheet of paper and show their work. Then they transferred their answers back to a crossnumber puzzle to see if it fit. It should be an easy and fun homework assignment.
U.S. History: Today we discussed Document C of the Jamestown DBQ. It is due tonight. Students answered questions pertaining to shipping lists. We also took a look at the Library of Congress website. There are many resources available including primary source documents. Students will need to go to the website throughout the year and possibly next year for their history fair project.
