- Chemistry: Research Paper Materials for chosen topic
- Physical Science: Research Paper materials for chosen topic
- Economics: Minimum two sources for Persuasive Speech prep
- US History: Pictures for WWII scrapbook
For US History I have scrapbook paper you may choose from or you may bring your own. We have already discussed each project in class but if you have any questions please ask. I look forward to seeing the finished products.
In Physical Science we've been studying periodic motion, the pendulum, and waves. Wednesday we watched a video that described all about waves: wave motion and wave properties. I've posted this video below for review as you study for the test tomorrow.
Thanks, Mr. Anderson from Bozeman Science.

Persuasive Essay post HERE and watched the video of the debate, you will remember that I added an extra incentive to watch the video and then leave a comment. Five extra bonus points would be added to your persuasive essay score on Monday, January 9th, which will be recorded as a TEST grade. I've thought some more on this extra credit and thought I would ADD five more bonus points if you could do a simple outline (following the set up we discussed on Wednesday, January 4th) of either the affirmative or the negative side in their opening arguments. That means you could earn up to TEN BONUS POINTS on your persuasive essay!! Such a nice teacher! Now who will take me up on my offer?

So while you're wandering around your house today not sure what today on this glorious snow day, I've included the video we were originally going to watch in class today. Your job is to pay close attention to the opening speeches from both the negative and affirmative sides and to compare them to the information we've been studying in class these last few days about the art of persuasion.
Now here is an incentive for you: if you watch this video and leave me a comment below you will earn +5 Bonus Points on the persuasive essay you are reading in class on Monday, January 9th. And yes, your essay is still due on Monday and will be a TEST Grade. Remember you are only reading your essay to the class...nothing else. I will want to see both your outline and your written essay. There is no required length to your essay but you must be persuasive!

I am certainly looking forward to this new project we are working on in chapter 22 of our US History. World War II is most fascinating! So to complement our studies we are doing a project on World War II Through the Radio. If you're looking for some inspiration then watch the video above...a short film, really, on behind the microphone.
Don't be afraid to add sound affects and to get some help from other students, parents, or siblings. BE CREATIVE...and let me know if you have any questions!
San Lucas 2:1-
Acontecio (accent on last o) en aquellos días,
que se promulgo (accent on last o) un edicto de parte de Augusto Cesar (accent on e),
que todo el mundo fuese empadronado.

Click HERE to be directed to a website where several topics are actually linked to more information about that topic. Remember, final topics are due on Monday, January 9th. I will be passing around a sheet of paper where each student will write their name and their chosen topic. These next few days are to be spent making sure that one of your three topics will have the required amount of sources needed for this paper: two must be books.

Welcome to a brand new semester! I realized after the last five months of school that there are a few problems that have keeps in: some that were not foreseen and some that I have become lax on enforcing. These problems will be addressed on our first day back and a new Class Rules sheet will be handed out for you to keep. If you have any questions, please be sure to ask!
