First, we will thoroughly the test from last week and look at some test taking/studying strategies.
Next, we will begin the chapter on Colonial Influences. We will be studying documents like the Magna Carta, the English Bill of Rights and the Mayflower Compact, as well as discussing the philosophies of Locke and Montesquieu. These ideas shaped how the first Americans were thinking when they created our government.
This class starts moving quickly, so if you are not understanding anything you must speak up. I hope to see many parents at Curriculum Night where I will discuss the organization of the class as best I can in a ten minute timeframe.
Let's Learn and let's have fun!
