Congratulations on completing your freshmen year at Skyline! Grades are finalized and posted.
It has been an absolute privilege working with each and every one of you. Thank you for the energy, humor, and effort you brought to class everyday! Thank you all for challenging me to be a better teacher, asking ridiculous questions, and for making me excited to come to work everyday. I've posted my new email address below and am looking forward to keeping in touch. As always, don't hesitate to ask if there's anything I can do to help.
Wednesday: Before school and during class
Thursday: After school
Attached you will find the study guide for your semester final.
Today we talked about the "dos" and "don'ts" of a formal dinner party. Then we decided to spend time practicing the dont's and started to research current events and major issues in the United States for a discussion on Friday.
Today we watched a fantastic PBS Documentary on the Rise of ISIS in Iraq.
Create an infographic explaining ISIS (due Monday)
•Statement of Origin
•Map of territory
•Data and Statistics
Today we talked about the start of the War in Afghanistan, the result of the Iraq War, and the Rise of ISIS. Then we started working on timelines to help us visualize the wars and the build up of ISIS.
Your homework is to finish the timeline you started in class today:
Using the power of the internet, create a detailed timeline on the Rise of ISIS
Include details of:
The War in Afghanistan
The War in Iraq
The formation and rise of ISIS
Today we created mind-maps (or bubble maps, or visuals) of the Syrian conflict in order to visualize who was involved and how everyone was linked. These are due tomorrow.
