Hwk: Read 22-1 and study for a possible round of quizlet live tomorrow.

Students completed primary source analysis in pairs and a whole class discussion followed. After that, we watched some video, approximately 5-6 minutes, on Vietnam after 1954. During the video, students were able to answer questions for points for their group. If you were absent, you may pick up copies of the documents/questions when you return.

I reviewed the remaining schedule, encouraged students to prepare for final exams, and met with students whose absences were above 5 to make sure they were aware of their status.

If you were absent, you will be placed with a work group to continue our work on primary sources from yesterday.

Hwk: Study for Thursday’s test.

The chapter 21 test reminder for Thursday was posted on the board and announced in class. The make up is still scheduled for Friday after school on the 17th. 

All classes completed the video we’ve been using to supplement our text on the movement for civil rights in the United States after World War II. After the video, students worked in small groups on a review that doubled as a bonus for the groups. If you were absent, you can use it for review: Review for Section 3 I can check it for you, even though it won’t be used toward the group standings.

Hwk: If you needed more time to complete the reading and chart for 21-3, finish it by Monday.

The test on chapter 21, which is the last single chapter test before final exams, is on Thursday May 16th and the make-up is on Friday May 17th.

All classes watched some of the video we’ve been using for this unit and then students worked on a guided reading chart for 21-3 regarding the split in beliefs and tactics of the civil rights movement by 1965. Here is the chart if you were absent: Copy of 21-3 Chart.doc

The test for chapter 21 is next Thursday 5/16 and the make up is next Friday 5/17, after school.

We analyzed a primary source today from the civil rights era, watched a short amount of the video we’ve been using for this section, and played just a couple rounds of quizlet live. If you were absent, I have a copy of the primary source for you. And, there hasn’t been a blog bonus in awhile so, for twenty thousand points you could write your team name and hour in the subject line of an email. And, before you send it to me, in the body of the email you can write the name of the piece of legislation (including the year) that outlawed literacy tests. The deadline is 11:59 pm tonight.
