please remember that pages on Wikipeadia are generally good, but they don't always represent the real facts about what happened. They are a great starting point however.

Below is our schedule for October and the reading assignment for each night's homework. Be sure to answer the questions at the end of each of the readings listed. This will consitute your homework assignment each evening. Please remember too, per last month, the morning bellringer quiz will cover the previous night's reading.

Thinking and Writing -

Critical thinking and learning skills:

A students need to be able to express their ideas and thought s in writing. The common way we learn to do this is through expository writing.  The typical essay I want all of you to master is to first set out the theme of your essay. This is usually done with an introduction, then formulate two three arguments or facts in separate paragraphs that support your thesis and then finish with a conclusion which pulls your thoughts together and establishes that you have mastered your argument.
