Global Research Project

November 27-December 22


For the last three weeks Ms. Ali and myself have been working with students on an intensive global research assignment. Students have been working to compose a research paper, as well as a Power Point presentation that will be a large portion of their quarter 2 grades. If you have been checking Parent Portal frequently you will notice that we have been updating grades accordingly so you can keep track of your students progress. We have stressed to the students multiple times in class as the weeks have gone by that this a large part of their grade. HOWEVER, it will all be done IN CLASS. We chose to do this assignment in class as we are aware of how much it weighs in on their grades. In that case, this gave students an opportunity to ask us a variety of questions or concerns at all times. Please be aware that if your child was not on track we did our absolute best to contact you. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us before the quarter ends. We should have all assignments in regards to the research project up after winter break (students will be presenting until Friday). Thanks for your understanding.
