There are still multiple students who are missing work in this course; this missing work is severely disadvantageous to your success this semester/receiving credit.
Please visit Skyward and take note of your missing assignments; email scanned documents or photos of your assignments to firstname.lastname@example.org to receive credit. April 10th will be the last day that I accept missing work from before the school closure!
In connection with our first unit in Contemporary Issues, research and locate any recent (past 3 months) homelessness data in comparison with data from the last two years. Discuss with family and classmates how you feel this contemporary issue is evolving/not evolving with COVID-19 and recent circumstances.
Communication: If you have any missing assignments, please use this week to complete them and email them to me for late credit. This week I will grade assignments which were completed prior to school closure and put them in the grade book.
For enrichment activities (optional) and connecting to our learning from right before the closure, read some contemporary news stories and analyze/identify their use of claims, grounds, and warrants. As an added/extra challenge, find the very first article which reported coronavirus in China – analyze the original claim and how the claim has evolved over time.
