October 13th – 17th 2014
Students will be taking their mid-semester Benchmarks this week for other classes. The WORLD GEOGRAPHY BENCHMARK was on Thursday October 9th. This Benchmark enables me to determine those areas in which students need additional assistance and review. Any student that has not taken the Benchmark needs to take it as soon as possible
END OF FIRST 9 WEEKS GRADING PERIOD
The First 9 Weeks Grading Period ends on Wednesday October 15th. All students should ensure that they have made up any missed quizzes or retaken those quizzes that they did not receive a passing grade on.
EARLY STUDENT DISMISSAL
Thursday October 16th will be a half day with students being released from school at 12:30. Students will have intramurals for this half day.
QUIZ & TEST MAKE-UPS
Any student that needs to retake or make-up a missed quiz will be allowed the opportunity to better their grade by doing so during Thursday’s half day.
This week’s homework is the EUROPE COUNTY INFORMATION ORGANIZER that was passed out Tuesday October 14th. Each student chose a country to study and complete the organizer with the information from that country. Students should use the link on my Webpage to the CIA World Fact Book to find information to complete the front of the organizer. The organizer is due at the start of class on Friday October 17th. Students should be prepared to provide a short presentation on their country in class.
This week we will continue our study of Europe. Students should reread Unit 4 to prepare for class. Students will be allowed time in class to work on their organizer. Any work or worksheet that is started and not completed in class becomes homework that is due the following day.
There will not be a regular quiz this week. The presentation that students provide on their country will serve as this week’s quiz. Students should also review questions that they missed on previous quizzes, as the most missed questions are reviewed and used on the next week’s quiz. Weekly quizzes cover the information that has been taught and reviewed during the week.
