Hello again everyone. Students have been busy in the past week working on their team presentations on either Ancient China or Ancient Greece. Students got together in groups and decided on which ancient civilization they would like to focus. Most students performed extremely well on this task. Students had to work together as a team to decide who would be working on which slides and what those slides would contain. This type of teamwork is common in the workplace these days, so developing the skill of working as a team is essential. Grades for this assignment are availabe on Thinkwave in the gradebook. The break down of those grades can be seen in Google documents found in the Google Drive.

This week, we are going back to whole group presentations. Students will start the week viewing videos on Mesopotamia. I will then share a presentation with the students that will focus on the civilizations that developed in the fertile crescent.

As usual, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to drop me a line.
