Hello Students! 

A huge thank you to all of you that turned in last week’s assignment! If you haven’t turned in your vocab yet, please do so as soon as possible. We hope you are all staying healthy and getting plenty of rest during our time off, but we miss you all and cannot wait for school to open back up! Along with this week’s assignment, make sure you watch CNN10 every morning to make sure you are staying in the loop with national and global news. This week’s assignment is very similar to last week’s, and will consist of reading some of your book and completing an assignment on Google Slides. The assignment will be due on Friday March 27th. If you have any questions, feel free to email Mr. Kurdi or Mr. Trusewicz. Have a great week and go wildcats!

(3/23-3-27): Begin reading Section Two: Rural Decline Causes Urban Migration. Make sure you pay attention to the Geo-terms that are introduced in this section. Discuss this section with your family and friends and make sure you discuss the charts and graphs that are in this section. 

Ask yourself- What is this graph showing me? How is this information relevant? 

Next, read Section Three: Urbanization Creates New Problems. Once again, look for important vocabulary words in this section and discuss them with your friends and family while looking at the graphs and illustrations. Make sure you look at the image Polluted City Air. What is the city that is in this picture? What are they showing us in this picture? What effects do you think this would have on the environment?

After reading these two sections, you will then create a Storyboard on Google Slides. You will write about three sections in your storyboard- Section One: The Geographic Setting, Section Two: Rural Decline Causes Urban Migration, and Section Three: Urbanization Creates New Problems. Make sure you look for the essential question, create five facts about each section, come up with one question about each section, and add in one picture per section. If you have any questions, please email Mr. T or Mr. Kurdi. Have a great and productive week! 

Mr. Trusewicz, Mr. Kurdi, & Mrs. Talukder

Video Drone Shows Spatial Inequality in Mexico

Hello Everyone!

Check out this video that Mrs. Talukder found about spatial inequality in Mexico. Read the captions in video to understand why Mexico City is divided the way it is. Notice how the two sides of Mexico City are extremely differnt. Think about how life would be living on either side. Also, think about how this video compares to the information in chapter 9. Discuss the video with someone in your family.

Hello students! 

We hope that you are all safe and sound at this time. Please make sure you are all washing your hands as much as possible and avoid touching your faces! Even though we will not be meeting for the next few weeks, we want to make sure that we provide you work to do for the class so we do not fall behind when we get back. Below is what we expect you all to do by Friday, March 20th. Keep checking the Iblog to make sure you’re keeping up to date with the class! If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please email Mr. Kurdi or Mr. Trusewicz, we will try to answer as soon as possible! 

(3/16-3-20): Begin reading Chapter 9, Spatial Inequality in Mexico City: From Shacks to Skyscrapers. Read the introduction by yourself and discuss the reading with your friends or family. Discuss what you have learned and begin making connections to previous chapters that we have read. Next, read section one, The Geographic Setting. After reading, discuss with your friends or family once again and make sure you are studying the vocabulary words along the way. After you finish reading these sections, you will create a slideshow on Google Slides and instead of doing the vocab squares that we usually do, you will create them in a slideshow instead. You can design the slides however you want as long as each Geoterm is listed and has each of the following: 

  1. The book’s definition 
  2. Your own definition 
  3. The vocabulary word in a sentence 
  4. A picture explaining the vocabulary word

You can put all of the information on one slide for each vocab word, you can do four slides for each vocab word, or any other way you can think of. Once again, if you have any questions, please send us an email and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
