Senior Project overview
This week we read several article regarding the public edu. system, its origins and original purposes in America, and issues within our current system. These articles are on the lit. unit page, under the summer work (toward the bottom "First weeks" section).
We also look closely at the CCSS ELA standards. What ARE they? Let's put them into student friendly language so you can use them and know if you are meeting them.
Here I will post what the class did each day, what was due, what was assigned and when it's due, and where work should be turned in (Classroom, in-box, TII).
Often there will be links to resources or assignments posted here as well. Other times I'll post that "directions are on the lit unit page" or "directions in Classroom" and the information you need can be found there.
Please contact me with any questions.
