A few items students received today:
Back to School Night - Information was sent home in all A Period classes today for Back to School Night. If it never came home to you, you can download a copy here: http://j.mp/btsn2014
Academic Vocabulary - We will start studying academic vocabulary next week. In preparation for this, I have asked students to look over Chapter 1, Section 3 (pages 16-20) in their textbook (it deals with the reasons for the fall of the Roman Empire). The handout is here: http://j.mp/1q4M5W1. All the directions are right on the handout. This assignment will require the textbook.

Course Orientation - My copies were still being sent to my old school: West Ranch High School. I finally started getting them sent to me this morning, so you finally have a course orientation for my class. Hurray! You can see a digital copy here: http://j.mp/ippsyllabus. There is a lot of information in there about my grading system, and we haven't even entered any grades in my class yet, and so if you are able to wait until Back to School Night, I can explain my grading system in person. If not, feel free to email me if you have questions.
