Eighth Grade research papers were tabled until third quarter due to the many interruptions during second quarter instruction. I was not prepared for the shadow days, retreats, and various other disruptions to the eighth grade schedule that we encounter during second quarter. If you checked out library books that needed to be returned or you returned them it will be fine. Students will have already taken notes form those sources and they have the source cards necessary to cite the work in their papers. We will begin work in earnest on the research papers Monday February 6. Guidelines for the paper are downloadable below:
We will begin our research Monday February 6. The Seventh Grade topic is place. They will choose somewhere in the world to research. I will be encouraging students to stay local. Local history and research is always interesting as it is relatable. I enjoyed the Glendale history the Mayor presented at the awards ceremony last week. Topics will be reviewed with students and it will ultimately be their choice.
