Immigrant Legislation

March 28, 2006

Remember:  Today is the teacher’s day of silence.  Any
clarification you need, needs to come from one another.  I am
simply a warm body– but a very mute one.  Everyone needs to
manage their time correctly, for at 20 after 8 a.m., I will be heading
to class, and it is up to Roxy and Scott to ensure that everyone get
there too!

Assignments:

  1. Answer the quickwrite: Discuss your thoughts and/or feelings regarding the new immigrant legislation.
  2. Find another article, print it, and take it back to class. 
    In class, find two pieces of valuable information, and turn that
    information into chunks.

Article #1

March 27, 2006

Task #1:  Answer the prompt– Discuss the possible teacher strike.  (1 Paragraph)
Task #2:  Find an article you can use in your research.  Print it out and bring it to class.

Deciding Upon Your Topic

March 24, 2006
