NOTEBOOKS!!!!!

We are setting up our notebooks/binders!!!  This is a very important organization tool in this class!!!  The will keep ALL if their work in their notebook!!!  I keep one too, and their’s should match mine!!!

Parents, please ask to see their cover page!  It  should be colorful and creative and neat!!!  Their syllabus should be glued in on the back of their cover page.  (binders just need to hole punch, number and insert page) I explained to the people are using a binder how to hole punch their papers and how to put them in the binders.  So, we should be good to go!

Please make sure you have your NOTEBOOK with you EVERY day!!!!!

*If getting a notebook or binder is a problem…. PLEASE write me a note!!  I find a way to help!

The learning about History can be disturbing!

In response to some concern.  I do present the option of opting out.  Although, I do feel it is extremely important to study the Holocaust!  By learning about the Holocaust we learn about prejudice and bullying and why these things are wrong.  We learn about how history can repeat itself if we don’t make better choices.  We learn about empathy, sympathy, compassion and tolerance for others!  I will agree that history can be disturbing, that is why we need to learn about it….so maybe this generation will make better choices in their future!  I hope that helps.  P

Students, please feel free to comment on what you  have learned from this study.

Thank you again for your concern and comments.
