I’m sorry this Social Studies Update is a little tardy, I had a long meeting with Mr. Tingen, our student teacher, on Friday afternoon and didn’t have time to make the video. So here is the Monday Social Studies Update, please let me know if you have any questions.
We did upload the 2nd Quarter benchmark test to the online grade book. This benchmark is a reflection of current understanding for content covered in the 2nd quarter. The grade does not change overall averages, it is merely a diagnostic tool for teachers and students. Parents might want to talk to their students about the test as we allowed students to annotate the test a week before we had them answer the questions. We did a reflection today and most students said they felt they did better because of that time previewing the questions.
I am also attaching the Islamic Expansion Review Guide and a text that students will need to preview before the assessment, which is tentatively scheduled for early next week.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
