I said, "Well, not for the people living in them." (Did my students not understand how bad the Depression was? Was I not teaching them well? Oh, no!)
"No, we mean they were fun to learn about!"
"Oh, that's ok. I'm glad to hear it!" (Whew!)
Some students were still finishing their genre worksheets, which were due yesterday, as the class celebrated their 30s Decade Day--City Lights and Monopoly with Lays Potato Chips and Fritos. A few still need to turn theirs in today.
Book projects are due in January. Every student has signed up for a project, and they each know their due date.
We extended the due dates for the science fair projects because some kids needed to take longer on the experiments. All experiments must be done by the time kids return after vacation. The first week back in January we will have computer lab time to work on making data charts and graphs and writing the analysis and conclusion.
I returned the first part of the science projects. Those were graded. Students should fix those and make them as good as possible.
