Weather was terrible the night before, I assumed that school would be canceled but by morning it had turned to slush.
Because of the delay I decided to move everything back one day on the calendar from the packet. So I will be having the test on next Tuesday instead of Monday. Today we listened to some Woodie Guthrie songs. Talkin’ Columbia and Dusto Bowl Blues which both detail some points from the New Deal in Lyrical format. I also handed back the students packets and tests from chapter 15. Shortened period, we couldn’t get to covering the homework. For Monday, I told the kids to have 10 questions about the content from the chapter 16 packet ready so that we can have a good discussion. I reminded them about participation and warned them that if they never raise their hands they will get a failing participation grade.
Today I gave out the test on cars. Students seemed a little frustrated with the makeup of the tests vs. the content of the material. I feel like that’s how it goes in a course without a textbook.
