I hope that everyone is having or has had a good weekend (depending on when you read this). In English this week, we are finishing up our presentations and spending some time practicing before giving them on Wednesday (Phillips HB) and Thursday (Freeman HB). The script writing process and the presentations are our performance task for English. This project will give the students all the knowledge they need to complete the script and presentation for their TED Talk next week.
In Social Studies, the students are continuing their research this week. Most time will be spent on gathering ideas for solutions that they can focus on during the script writing stage the following week.
Please refer to the homework slideshow that I sent out on Friday for more information about these task.
