Long term projects will usually have a rubric and a timetable that I will send home as well as post here. If your child falls behind on a project, he/she may have to work on it on the weekends. Most projects will be stored on Google and can be accessed through your child’s school gmail account. This allows them the ability to work anywhere they have internet access be it at home or at a public library. I will do my best to not put several tests or projects due on the same day.

We have started a new long term Social Studies project that includes technology. the students will be working in pairs to develop a travel brochure for a region of the United States. They will also be using a Google Slide presentation to teach the class about their region.

This is a large project and requires good collaboration between partners in order to be successful.
