Week 33:  Idealism

I live by my ideals.  I believe in my dreams.  I have faith that anything is possible.

If you didn't have some sense of idealism, then what is there to sustain you?

General info:

Spanish Test Rewrite Instructions:

  • All rewrites must be done on a separate piece of paper.
  • Please label the section and question number.
  • On the first line write what you wrote.
  • On the second line write the correct answer.
  • On the third line, write WHY your answer was wrong and WHY the correct answer is right.
  • You MAY use your book. If all of the above is complete, you can earn back 50% of the credit you missed.

EXAMPLE:

A.2.

I wrote: Yo es de Estados Unidos.

Correct answer: Yo soy de Estados Unidos.

My answer was wrong because “es” is the form of SER for él/ella/usted. The question asked for the “yo” form, which is “soy”.

7th Social Studies

"World Cultures" (Mrs. Johnson - [email protected]           
  • Read chapter 13
  • Students work on editing and peer reviewing our book on geography and world cultures. We chose 1/2 inch margins, Lobster as our title font, Verdana for our body font, and now tighten up the layout process for our book, and fine tune the writing by doing a cups analysis (capitalization, understanding, punctuation and spelling)

  • Here is the link to the google doc that we will be using to formulate the rough draft of our book. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1mx83dcPgCM7B_UsidLyW4pumTpBMyglx2L5R8xsPJRI/edit?usp=sharing . I will post it above. We are well underway in our cultural trip around the world.  Students will be graded on their participation, amount they write, quality of writing, correctness of the content, citing sources correctly. We plan to use Blurb.com to create the book which provides Book Wright software platform to create our books. Students are encouraged to begin creating their pages now. We designed the cover page for each chapter, the map page and the first page of content. Students may create those pages now.
