We are working on a unit called EARLY EXPLORATION AND SETTLEMENT.
Students are currently working on the assignment INTERACTIVE JAMESTOWN.
They are doing it in class the week of October 25-29.
I have also posted it under CLASS HANDOUTS.
The DEADLINE to turn it in is November 08.
The week of November 01-05 we will look at THE LOST COLONY. See the handout page for work on LOST COLONY THEORIES. Students started this on the week of 10-18 to 22. We will complete it after completing of the JAMESTOWN work. The deadline for the LOST COLONY THEORY sheet is also November 08.
We will then spend a day or two of Settlement of NC by doing a reading together, then having a quiz on the reading.
I will then review with the students. They will be given a TEST STUDY GUIDE. We will then test on the unit.
