This post is to announce that from now on all homework assignments and announcements for each class section will be posted on Google Classroom. I will no longer be updating the assignments here. If you need the class code for your section you can contact me and I will be glad to add you.
From now on, homework assignments will be posted on Google Classroom for all of My Burnett US History classes. If you have not yet added the class, please contact me for a class code. Major assessments and larger assignments are posted on Managebac with their deadlines.
I am trying to streamline the number of places students look to find information about my class. Because Mangebac is the required grading program for BMS, I will be using it to post grades. Assignments that you need to download or find instructions on will be on Google Classroom.
*** If you cannot access Managebac please contact me or any other teacher at our school and they should be able to walk you through the login process.
As soon as Google Classroom is up and running all assignments will be posted there.
For now: your first homework assignments for the year are below:
1. Get your syllabus initialed and signed and return to Ms Muntz by August 25. An additional copy of the syllabus can be found by following this Syllabus for 8th grade/MYP year 3 link.
2. Personal History Assignment parts 1-3 due August 18 and 21. If you need a new copy of this assignment you can download it on Managebac.
study for map quiz number two!
Be sure to use a specific study strategy for example:
Study your maps for the second set of geography quizzes!
Finish writing the three body paragraphs for your essay. You do not need to write the introduction or conclusion yet. Please write your (minimum of four sentence) paragraphs directly on the worksheet provided in class. If you run out of room, attach an additional sheet of paper.
Over the Fall Break please simply begin to study the maps for the second set of geography quizzes.
See Room C2 for copies of the exact maps for the quiz.
Due on September 21 and 22
1. Iberian Explorers Map completed and questions answered
2. Timeline assignment
Using the Index and Glossary of your textbook, find at least 12 of the following events and place them on your timeline:
Go through your notebook and check to see that you have completed all of the assignments on the rubrics passed out in class. The Criteria A rubric applies to the "Notes" section and the Criteria D rubric applies to the "paragraphs" section. Self-assess on both of the rubrics, circling the grade you believe you have earned on each assignment (***hint, this is your chance to revise and improve your work).
If you were absent or lost your rubric papers see attached.
