History: Students worked on their explorer reports. This is due December 6th, with due dates along the way. Those dates are outlined in their notes packet. A copy of the packet can be found in their digital classroom.
Homework: Explorer Report and incomplete math work from class. Study multiplication math facts.
7th Grade Writing Lab: 1:29-2:13
Students are working on an expository writing assignment that takes a look at one of our characters, El Viejo, and his right to die and refuse medical treatments. Students pick a stance to support El Viejo or not. There is no right or wrong answer. I’m looking for students to pick a side and defend it based on their own personal beliefs, thoughts, morals, principals, or ideals. The big thing is can the student write in a way to show support for their claim using research.
