Utah and U.S. History

Email: jolyne.merchant@edisoncs.org

History is our story - it is the story of US. It tells us who we are and where we have been. It helps us understand people and society. It contributes to moral understanding, provides us with an identity, and is essential to good citizenship. History is both beautiful and messy - but it defines who we are.

This week in 7th grade Utah History Class:

This week we are having the test on Ancient Americans. It will be on Friday, October 13th. We will do a review for the test on Thursday.

The bibliographies are due on Thursday October 12th. However, if they have been keeping up on these, it should just be a matter of checking for correct conventions and printing it out. If you have a chance, please read over these with them to help them with the correct capitalization, punctuation, grammar, and fluency. I do need to have the bibliographies printed this time. Please hand them in on Thursday by the end of school. After that we have a bit of a break as they begin their work on science project ideas. We won't have another assignment due until November 9th. But if students would like to get started, I have the assignment printed and ready to go in the classroom or you can print it this website under the NHD project tab.

Tutoring or extra help: I am here most days before 7:45 and don't leave most days until 5 pm. I am here to help your students and look forward to seeing them grow in their knowledge and desire to learn. Mondays are faculty meetings - so that is the only day that I wouldn't be able to visit for more than a few minutes.

New to our school? If NoodleTools is something you don't know yet how to maneuver through, I would be happy to give you a tour and help you with learning how this wonderful tool works. Please let me know if you would like any specific training.
