TimeMarch 03, 2013

from:Bidell, Barbara

to:US History

Students are presenting their projects on notable African-Americans in U.S. History. Each studetn focused on four African-American leaders in four different eras in history. Students who are taking the proficiency exams presented their projects on Friday. The rest of the class will present their over the next two days.

Starting Wednesday, students will be embarking on another unt on the suffragist movement. Students will be focusing on a suffragist and creating a project on her. The rubric should be in each student's drive. The projects are due next week; however, if students taking the proficiency exams need more time, they may have that time. 

Homework for this week will revolve around the suffragist movement. Students will be answering the following questions: 

1) What was the Seneca Falls Convention of 1848.

2) Who were some of the speakers at that event?

3) What were the women and men who supported the movement asking for?

For homework on March 11, students should work for 20 minutes on their suffrage project to ensure that it is completed by the due date, March 13.

As usual, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at bidellb@nhalv.org.
