AND NOW...A WORD FROM YOUR TEACHER...
So, my kid is sick. Again. And my husband stayed home yesterday, so now it's my turn. Read directions carefully- I'll try to check email a few times if she's not raging too hard. Good luck! Send healing thoughts!
Starter 19: What do you think you need to work on in your writing? What do you struggle with? Where do you think your strengths are as a writer?
Seminar Writing Self-Assessment
Okay, time for you to self-assess this piece of writing, before we sit down together. Here’s what I want you to do…
Checks and Balances Review Posters
Split class randomly into 3 groups: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial Branches. In groups make a review poster that includes the information below. There's butcher paper in Ashley's classroom, and markers in my cabinet. Make it cool! Use symbols, visuals, color coding!
In groups, you'll have a bit of time to revisit all that we've done so far. Use the following resources:
1. Study guide
2. Video organizer (Constitution USA)
3. Bill of Rights organizer
4. The blog, etc...
5. What else?
6. Make sure you know…
a. What powers are shared by states and feds, and what powers are theirs alone
b. Bill of Rights- numbers and amendments
