Tuesday: Socials 11 - Writing in socials/history class
Today I gave my take on how to simplify the writing process. Remember: "names/tells more." Start with the basics and work up. We examined topic sentences and closers and I issued a copy of the UN Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Convention on Child Rights. Tomorrow with the TTOC, you will have your first chance to wow me with your writing acumen. Ensure you bring your workbooks to class so you can study if you finish early. On Thursday we wrap up the unit and prep for Friday's unit test (then we go into the long weekend satisfied we've worked hard and deserve a break with no homework!).
