HISTORY
We are working on Chapter 10 - The Jefferson Era. Students should also be working on their third quarter project at home. Next Tuesday, March 10 will be the ONLY day that is available to work on the project during class. That entire day will be devoted to working on the PowerPoint part of the project. The project presentation is due by 23:00 on Thursday March 12th, no exceptions.  
All students received their recipes last week and their rubrics either Friday or today if they were out last Friday.

COMPUTERS
We are working in Code.org and also working on Excel Assignment revisions. The students all did very well on the Excel quiz in Moodle last week and should not have any issues making the revisions to their work as long as they carefully review the assignment requirements, the feedback I've given them, and then review against their work. All revisions are due by March 12th in order to count. All initial grading and comments for Excel Assignments #1 through #6 as well as all of the Opening Assignments and Ongoing Assignments are done. I am working on the initial grades and comments for Excel Assn #7 and #8 and as soon as those are complete I will begin the re-grading process for the work that the students have revised. All assignments can and should be revised until a grade of at least 90% is acheived.

Individual links for the Code.org each class are below and are also in Moodle and students should know their "secret words" to get into their work. They need to see me for the secret words as they are ready, they can also email me if it's after school hours and I will do my best to respond. We will be doing another Excel quiz in-class this Thursday and there will be one Code.org quiz next week and that will complete the quizzes for the quarter.

MATH
We continue to work on our daily homework assignments and we are focusing on ALEKS time and topics mastered.

Please reinforce the importance of respecting the space and work time of others; repeated distractions make it hard for work to be done. If your student is not receiving at least a 4/5 or 5/5 each day for being "Prepared and Working" that means that time is not being spent wisely and he/she is disrupting the work environment. It is also imperative that the students TRY their homework independently - we are starting to have days where this hasn't happened and they are just waiting to start it, or even to look at it for the first time in our class.
