Today I returned the castle design projects. The marks were generally 75% or higher. Some students have not yet returned this assignment and getting that done is a priority.
We also completed a study guide on King John and the Magna Carta. We discussed this step in beginning the process that ended autocratic rule (eventually) and established the conditions for parliamentary democracy (and the preservation of the Crown). We also watched this video and then made some connections between the Magna Carta and our own Charter of Rights and Freedoms. You should complete the study guide at home if you were unable to do so in class. We'll share our classroom "Magna Cartas" at the beginning of next class.
