Creative Writing 8: During 2nd quarter, the students in Creative Writing have worked on a variety of fiction, poetry, and comedy writing. The students will choose a final piece to share with the class. Final pieces will be shared January 13-17.
Times of Change: Vietnam & the 1960s: During 2nd quarter, we covered a lot of information and there is still a lot to learn. The students have asked me to teach a class about the 1970s! I am hoping the students walk away from this class with a deep understanding of the events we covered and a quest to learn more about historical events! The students will present their “teach-in” topic the last week of the quarter (Jan. 13-17). Please feel free to join us for this activity. Contact Mrs. Bainbridge for more information.
2nd Quarter Advanced Options: The students in 6th and 8th grade Advanced Options will present their research January 13-17. Please check your e-mail (or your child) for an invitation to these presentations!
3rd Quarter: Advanced Options 6, 7, & 8: The students in Advanced Options, 3rd quarter, will begin to brainstorm some areas for research. Research topics and research questions are due Wednesday, February 5. The students will be presenting their research the last week in the quarter. More information will be coming home about your child’s presentation date, please let me know if you have any questions.
