Class Information

Mr. Jeffrey's Classes

Economics and the Business World - Instead of the debate this week, each student should take a position on "Big Government" or Small Government". They should write a page supporting their point of view. They should have a handout with the websites that they have been using for their research.

 

Mock Trial  - No assignment  But, we have canceled the trial with the other school for May 2nd. There is no way we would be ready. We will finish North Carolina vs. Delany if and when we come back so be ready.

 

Historical Myth Busters - I have attached the topics for the next unit. You should research one of the topics and write a summary paper regarding your opinion as to whether or not it is a myth or truth.

 

Where in the World is Marco Polo - I have attached the Search One of East Asia. Use the internet to follow Marco Polo

 

Humanities: the 1940's - We were supposed to start the final multi-media project in groups. This is not possible unless we come back after April 17th so no assignment

 

Time Travelers - I have attached the paired reading on the contributions of the Jewish people to Western civilization. After reading this and answering t you should write a paragraph explaining which contribution was the most important.

 

Since I have many students who have several classes with me, don't feel you have to do all the assigned work. Keep your mind busy and know that we all miss each one of you. I hope we are able to say good-bye for the summer.  Be safe and stay healthy.

Cake Decorating 2 & 3:  I realize that your decorating kits are still at LEAP, making any decorating difficult to impossible. IF you have extra tips at home, make some buttercream icing (https://www.wilton.com/buttercream-frosting/WLRECIP-41.html) and practice whatever techniques you feel moved to practice. Send me a picture, if you're able (karen.henton@thompsonschools.org)

Alternatively, brainstorm and sketch or google/pinterest some ideas for a cake or cupcakes for any upcoming event in your family.

GRAFIX PUBLICATIONS & GOOGLE UP CLASSES

 

These classes were already set up in Google Classroom and will continue, so be sure to check in every week!

 

One of our clever Employees suggested that if you all take fun pictures of what you did over this extended Spring Break, we can add it to the yearbook.  Great idea! As always, we need more pictures, especially since we cannot take any more while we are out of school. That would help a lot! Send any pictures you have to: beth.unruh@thompsonschools.org

Thank you!
