Weekly Newsletter (May 9-13)


Posted by MrLynch | Posted in Weekly Newsletter | Posted on May 7, 2016

This week, students will take the Smarter Balanced (SBAC) test on Tuesday and Wednesday with the math portion. Like last week, there will be a slowdown of math/science (meaning no homework) because we lose those periods for testing on both those days.

Students were introduced to the Controversial Issue Project 2016 one month ago. They have their own copy of the packet, but you could check it out on here as well. You could also see all the details on the website – www.controversialproject.weebly.com. They already decided on a topic, and spent a good amount of time researching last week. Their next step is that they will create/produce either a website, a documentary, or a research paper. Each student will also create a tri-fold poster (visual) of their topic. The entire project is due on May 24.
