A new Study Island assignment is up and running. The assessment for the Industrial Revolution is due on Friday, December 30, 2012. Do not delay in preparing to take the assessment. Work on the lessons, games and practice tests to earn Blue Ribbons BEFORE your take the assessment. Good luck!
Because of our new need to complete Charleston County Benchmark testing by 11/2/2012, I have postponed Chapter 16 test until Wednesday, 11/7/2012.
What and How to Study for Chapter 16:
1) Reread Chapter 16
2) Read all FYR assignments
3) Review Vocabulary by using Quizlet
4) Review ISN information, ISN #'s 26-33.

DBQ: What Drove the Sugar Trade?
October 17, 2012
Any papers turned in after the due date of October 17 will have 5 points taken off score for each day it is late.
On Monday, we will begin our first Document Based Question essay. This is a challenging process which will be a brand new experience for most students. It involves organization, content comprehension, inferencing, categorizing, classifying, identifying…the list goes on. The end result of this week long process is a 5 paragraph essay in which they have formed a hypothesis to a posed question and backed up their premise with supporting details from primary and secondary sources.
This process can be intimading and frustrating. However, it is well worth the effort. This developed process will be used by most students throughout high school and well into college and beyond.
Our first DBQ will answer the question: What Drove the Sugar Trade? This is a great follow topic up to the unit we just finished which explored the Global Ages and its effects it had on the world regarding trade and colonization.
