Project and Essay Due Dates

Below will be an updated list of any projects or essays and their due dates as they are assigned.  Daily small homework assignments will not be posted here.  Those can be found in your child’s weekly homework log.

Due August 18: Decorate Writer’s Notebook

Due August 22: Social Studies Travel Brochure Project:TravelBrochureRubric

I tried to upload the assignment, but it is having technical difficulties.  Your child has a copy of the assignment requirements.  I was able to include the rubric that shows how they will be graded.  We have gone over the rubric in class.  Please work with your child to complete the project, but allow them to do their own work.  Using the rubric to help your child self assess may be a good role for the parent to take during this project.  Students have also seen  these examples in class:

These are just examples to give ideas for creativity.  Students needs to add creativity to make it their own. The paper should be folded like a brochure.
