This webpage includes details/descriptions and links for 8B Social Studies Remote Learning Activities.  You will need to spend enough time on these activities each week to meet your goal.  Activities with '(Repeatable)' can be done more than once.

U-Pick You (Repeatable)

If you have questions or want to share information in person, please visit me during office hours.

I am going to be entering a weekly RL score based on information I receive from students.  My general idea is that students will set a goal for how many minutes they are going to spend working on social studies each week.  The generic goal is 75 minutes per week for this class but students can raise or lower it to what the family determines is appropriate.  At the end of each week, students will send their parent/guardian and me one email with:
- a
list of social studies things they did that week
- the
amount of time they spent on each activity
- all their
written work
- information about
whether they reached their goal

If the student meets their goal, I will put a 1 in the gradebook.

If the student does not meet their goal, but includes an explanation for the reasons in their weekly email, I will put a 1 in the gradebook.

If the student does not provide reasons they did not meet their goal or they do not send an email, I will put a 0 in the gradebook.  Students are welcome to get in touch about zeroes that is actually what I hope will happen so it can get sorted out and the grade can be changed to a 1.

Students are welcome to copy & paste these questions & tables in their email as a format.  If they start an email on Monday and do all the work in it, it will be ready for totaling and sending at the end of the week.

Suggested format for copy & paste to family email:
