First day back!  Welcome to all my classes on the first day back to school.  The classes unfolded as follows:

APUSH

We first made our name tents complete with birthdays, birthplace, and a response to the following questions:  Where do you come from?  Where are you going?  While most of the students gave a geographic answer, some were more cultural (family) or abstract.  This led to a discussion of the differences between abstract concepts and the concrete as well as the differences between a college class and high school. 

Due on Tuesday is the article “The First Americans” complete with a marked text and three open-ended questions.

US History

We made our name tents and decided what cartoon character we were most like.  In 3rd hour students were divided into groups by birthday and began to evaluate what policy at school they most like to see changed.  Fourth hour completed this task on Tuesday.
