Book Reports

A book report will be due every marking period.  It will be up to your child to pick the book he/she would like to read, but the book must be approved by me.  Themes have been chosen for each book report.  Your child is responsible for completing each book report on time.  Parents, please help your child when assistance is needed, but allow them to be as creative as they want.  I will distribute a form explaining each book report and details on how it should be set up.  Being creative is welcomed for these assignments.  The form that I hand out is only a guide.

Due Dates:

Book reports must be handed in at least three weeks before the marking period ends, but they can be handed in sooner.  If due dates change both students and parents will be informed.

2018-2019 Current Event Schedule

 

Students will have a current event assignment due one Friday per marking period that will count for a social studies grade.  Please highlight your student number and the date that your current event is scheduled in the table above.   You will be notified if your date has changed due to snow days or major calendar events.

Students are to find an appropriate article in the newspaper to read and analyze. On the Friday before your current event is due, the worksheet you will need in order to complete the assignment will be provided. Feel free to print a copy of the current event form from my web page.  Don’t forget to include the article with your written work!
