If You Weren't Here

We graded our India maps today - the ones that students finished on Friday.  (So they're entered in the grade book as work from Friday, even though I only entered them today.)  If you weren't here, or didn't do it, you can get it - as always by going to student resources, and then "H Block Homework" on the CJHS page.

I also put today's bellwork on there in case you weren't here today.  Students may make that up as well, HOWEVER, if you were here today and were messing around, I'm not going to give you credit for it.  You have to have been absent.

We discussed Gandhi's assassination at the end of class for a little bit.  Godse, the assassin was executed, even though Gandhi's sons and Prime Minister Nehru argued for clemency.  They thought it was another slap in the face of a man who had spent his entire life arguing in favor of nonviolence.

That's where we left class.

To get the extra credit, you were supposed to read and discuss the blog with an adult.  So, it was an easy one today.

To prove you were here, get a scrap piece of paper and write a question about Gandhi - his life, death, what he stood for, something you didn't understand... whatever... but make it something we haven't covered yet.

Have the adult you read and discussed the blog with sign the paper.

See you tomorrow.

What is it?  Two days until spring break?

P.S.  I linked to the assignments if you're missing them.

I haven't finished entering the grades yet, so if yours aren't in there, check tomorrow after school.  It's 4:00 and I am going home.


  1. I think we should cancel spring break.
