What I Learned Today, 1/17

Today we worked on our social studies research papers.  Our goal today was to maybe accomplish putting pictures and text on our poster if you have one. Or also you could just find pictures and put them into a document. Some skills that we worked on was being quiet while we’re are working. We successfully got more work done.  In the beginning of  my class we were very loud, but we became quieter and got a lot of work done. The only homework assignment is to work on your research project. Have a great weekend!

Continuing SPEC Notes 1/13/14

Today in class our goal for the day was to continue to organize what we learn and put it into four categories. These categories are Social, Political, Economic, and Cultural. These together from our SPEC notes. During the class period we talked as a class and put events in history into those four categories. Doing this is going to help us take the notes better to also understand and complete them. Also in class today we looked at The Declaration of Independance and put the passages into the SPEC categories, after that we went over some of them as a class. Our homework for today was to work on revising our History Fair research papers and to read and answer questions that Mr.Little assigned to us. Those page numbers and question numbers Mr.Little has posted before this. Another thing to work on is to get most or all your materials for your history fair project and get them in by Friday.

Westward Expansion With Spec Notes

Hi, this is Jacob B. from second period. Today in class we started off by finishing the spec note posters that we created in groups. These posters had some great things to help with Westward Expansion. After that we created our own higher level thinking questions to trade with a friend, we then turned those in to Mr. Little. Lastly, we watched a video on the laptops about Westward Expansion from the years between 1790 and 2000 (the link is below). the main point of today was to finish up Westward Expansion and finish posters for higher level thinking questions. Today’s homework was to finish our revised history papers due tomorrow.
