Greetings! This week, students will start reading and analyzing Avi’s novel, Crispin: The Cross of Lead, and explore the Legacy of the Roman Empire. I look forward to students’ current event group presentations on Friday!
We had a great first week in 212! Students prepared and presented biopoems and group current events. They also picked up copies of their History Alive: The Medieval World and Beyond textbooks, History Alive Interactive Student Notebooks, EMC Write-In Readers, and Avi’s novel, Crispin: The Cross of Lead. We had our first fire drill on Friday and students did a fabulous job. I’m so impressed with how thoughtful, creative, and intelligent my core students are this year!
