Welcome to US History!!!
Due Thursday: Read and take notes on your syllabus in preparation for a syllabus quiz on Thursday.
Today we began class with a quickwrite. Respond to the following prompt in complete sentences:
◦What is the purpose of high school?
◦If you had the chance to design your own school to accomplish that purpose, describe how it would function:
◦What classes or activities would be offered?
◦What rules would be in place?
◦What behaviors should students exhibit?
We then worked on active listening skills by sharing our quickwrites with others and paraphrasing what we heard from others.
Finally, we did a short team building exercise: everyone wrote four statements about themselves – three true, one a lie. We then shared and tried to guess which statement was untrue.
If you were absent, check the absent folder for the papers we picked up as well as the homework board.
