All classes will be responsible for wrapping up the Unit on Colonial America.  Interactive Notebook  (Lesson 3 pages) Due Tuesday at the start of class.

All students will be assigned a Video to watch in EDPuzzle.  This video is a quick "countdown" to the American Revolution.  They will need to go to the Ed Puzzle site and watch the video and answer online.  They will have until Tuesday to complete.  I will grade these on Wednesday. So pick a a day and sit down and pay close attention to this Video on the steps that led up to the American Revolution.

GATE Classes will be given a colonial play to read Monday night.  Students in period 2 will need to read it thoroughly and be prepare to play any role  by  Wednesday .  They will need to complete the "The Background Information Sheet" and the "Points for Discussion and Debate".  

GATE Students will be assessed on Friday and Monday on their familiarity with the topic; their grasp of the importance of the idea central to the play;  and, their understanding of the importance of people like this in our country then and now. I encourage students to discuss this play and topic with a family member at home for while the topic is controversial to many (for various reasons) , the framers saw "separation of church and state" central to a healthy democracy.
