Important Notice: This has been updated 3/19
Travis has announced we will be out until April 17th. 
The assignments below will continue until we return.  I will collect them all when school resumes.  
Grades will be based on the complexity of the answers, complete sentences, and neatness.
Students will use their textbook and read one lesson and answer the questions at the end of the lesson, every 3 days.  Students do not have to answer the writers workshop questions.   Students will turn in their written work when school resumes.  Please do not send me pictures or PDF's of your work. I will collect and grade when we resume class. 
For those students who are using their on line textbook, via their Launchpad, the unit we are starting with is the Industrial Revolution.  The on line text book does not have page numbers.  
Students will begin reading: pgs. 319-330 then answer the questions on page 330.  They will have 3 days to complete.  Then students will read pgs. 332-340 then answer the questions on page 340.  They will have 3 days to complete and so on..... until school resumes. See you soon.   
For extra credit watch Paint your Wagon about the gold rush with parents permission, it is PG-13. Write a one page paper explaining the plot of the story.  And what you learned about the gold rush. 
Miss you all truly!! Stay healthy!!
