Students: The following is the list of vocabulary for our Unit 8.6 that will be continuously updated. This means that you will need to check this list every couple of days for updated new terms that will be added, as we learn them in class through our study of the second unit, Unit 8.6.
Avoid waiting for the last few days to begin your work on the terms below. Therefore, the classroom teacher suggests that you get cracking now. This means today, Thursday, January 09, 2020.
Remember that each Frayer model must include the definition of the term, its characteristics, an example, and a non-example. Note that if an example is not available to you, a picture can be sketched to represent the concept that you are working on.
After a careful study of our remaining sections for Lesson 4, it appears that there is only one more new concept to learn in this lesson that we can simply pick up on this coming Monday or Tuesday.
Our remaining focus in this lesson will be a C.E.R. that we have been practicing upon for the past several months, as well as we’ll be carrying out a data analysis in our packet to assist the governor of your assigned state.
Since the key ideas and main concepts will have been discussed sufficiently by Tuesday, we will be able to handle our test on Lessons 3 and 4 this coming Thursday.
A word of caution: Besides needing to review your material in the next five (5) calendar days, the classroom teacher highly recommends that you show up on Thursday, because should you be absent on test day, your makeup test of a different format will be scheduled for Friday, February 28, 2020, after school, which is fifteen (15) calendar days after our regular test, due to our Mid-Winter Break. Now, should you have already been planning on being absent this coming Thursday for whatever reason, then you need to arrange with your classroom teacher for you to show up on test day at 7:05 am to take the same test, with a 45-minute block up to 7:50 am, and then you are free to leave the building. If you are planning to be out of town and it is not possible for you to take the test at 7:05 am on Thursday, then your only other option is Friday, February 28, 2020.
Firefighters in Australia have been battling the bushfires for months.
(CNN)Firefighters battling Australia’s devastating wildfires are getting some help from the weather in New South Wales.Here’s how to help Australia bushfire victimsHeavy rains have knocked back the number of active fires in the state by almost a third — in just one day, according to the New South Wales Rural Fire Service.There had been 62 active fires Wednesday night, with 20 not contained, according to the agency.That number dropped to 42 active fires by Thursday night, and only 17 not contained.”Today we were over the moon to see rain arrive across many parts of New South Wales, with decent fall in the State’s north. Fingers crossed we see this rainfall remain steady and reach the firegrounds in Southern NSW over the weekend,” officials wrote on Facebook.
Students, look over your current bubble map of our Unit 8.6, and determine what questions we can answer now, and what other questions we can add to our map. This will be our focus on Monday. First, it will be individually done, then with your table group, and then followed by the whole class.
For genuine questions that are shared with the class, formative extra credit points may be earned. Many of you can use these points, since many of you have performed below average on our daily bellwork!
