We're basically finished with the 3 monotheistic religions. However, some people still don't understand the 5 Pillars of Islam.
So, I had the students come up with "The 5 (or a couple more) Pillars of Being a Good Student."
Here are some they came up with:
- Does the work/ Productive
- Organized/ Prepared
We applied this to the "5 Pillars of Islam." Hopefully it made a little more sense.
We also talked about OPEC today. We're introducing international organizations. We didn't deal with this much yet, but we will. Oh, we will.
If you want the extra credit, read and discuss the blog with an adult. Then, on a scrap piece of paper write a sentence telling whether or not you are a "good student" as defined by the pillars above. If you're lacking in any category, tell me which one or ones. If you think the list is missing something, write it down.
Have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign the paper.
Turn it in tomorrow.
