U.S. History:
In their PBL groups, the eighth graders are learning about the respective powers and duties of the three
branches of the U.S. Government.
The biography of an ancestor should be in the works. I have given students
the specifics and grading rubric for the project as well as sample interview
questions.
This is an essential project right now. The connection between
you and your grandparents is so important anytime, but especially right
now.
The due date for the fifty-page biography is April 27, 2020.
A sample of primary source document and image evidence is due April 2, 2020.
