Week of May 8

English and Social Studies

Students were reminded that causes need to be linked to the solutions. Solutions should link to the cause, but the cause need not all be solved because some are complicated. Choice Board was introduced and the rationale for their choice is due this Friday.  Please see last week’s post on the choice board and the rubrics. The final project is due on May 26 at 8:00 PM. Next week, the students will work on their last note cards – advocating for the solution that they support, which should consist of several different parts, for example, prevention-addressing current situation-rehabilitation and so on. Students should not forget the thesis statement.
