Economics Debate Workday...

We are coming down to the last three to four weeks of school--depending on whether your a senior or not. For 11th and 12th Economics we are gearing up for our team debate on "Does a Wage Gap Exist?" where the "Lisa Ping Award" will be decided and finalized. All are invited to attend! Invite parents, grandparents, Aunts/Uncles...this is going to be awesome!

I do want to remind you that this Thursday, April 27th, will be a workday for you and your partner as you both prepare your Constructives. Remember to included FACTS! FACTS! FACTS! Along with studies, experiments, etc. These help you persuade the audience that your side is right. Click HERE for an updated version of the debate format. I look forward to a great debate!

Video Explaining the Selfishness of Socialism...

I have certainly enjoyed these last two days of the 11th and 12th graders teaching. Teaching may be in your profession in the future! Just as a reminder of one of the lessons today on the negative influence government has on the economy, I have posted the video for you to watch. Enjoy!

No Research Paper Workday...

For the last six weeks we've been steadily working every Wednesday on our Science research papers. Last Wednesday, March 1st, was our second to the last workday. Tomorrow there will not be a workday but a regular day of lecture and chapter work. The second half of your rough draft containing the following components is due at the beginning of class. Here are the points that are to be in your second rough draft:

  • The Rest of Your Notecards
  • An Introductory Paragraph
  • A Concluding Paragraph
  • Smooth Transitions Between Ideas
If these points are not included in your rough draft, a 0% will be given for your Participation Test Grade and a homework slip sent home. Our last workday will be Friday, March 31st, so that you can get the entire paper ready to be turned in. I look forward to reading your papers!!
