Ask me about: My plans for Lent 
Seventh grade Humanities, SS/Lit:    History research and timeline due Tuesday:  research the historical context of your culture novel (history of the country you have chosen as it applies to understanding the setting of your book).  Using assignment sheet and rubric, and your literature notebook as a resource, complete the necessary research cycle steps.  Chose the ten most important historical events to accurately chart onto a timeline.  The last two items on the rubric deal with your oral presentation of your timeline; be prepared to explain why you think these are the ten most important events, and how they contribute to the world your character(s) live in.  This is intended to be Wednesday and Thursday homework, not weekend homework.   Continue to read section 2 of your independent culture novel, practicing the annotating skills and bookmark requirements; first half of book read by next Thursday.
