Innovative Learners: Week 3 (9/14 – 9/18)

 

Dear Parents and Students:

Happy Monday!  Please be reminded that students are expected to login to zoom for civics every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday during 6th period.  If you are unable (for any reason) to join class, please send me an email at gregorskis@ivyhawnschool.org.  Thank you!!!

 

 Tuesday’s Agenda:

  1. Study/Review for your exam for about 30 – 45 minutes.  You can do this in many ways!  Here are a few suggestions:
  2. Take the Citizenship, Duties, and Responsibilities Exam:
    • Go to socrative.com/login/student
    • Enter the class code GREGORSKI2
    • Type your last name, first name
    • Take the exam.  There are 25 questions all multiple choice and true and false.  You can navigate back and forth between questions.  Take your time and answer each question the best you can.  DO NOT USE YOUR NOTES TO TAKE THE EXAM!  I allow as many retakes as needed, so no need to worry if you do not do well on the first attempt.
    • When you have completed all questions click “finish quiz”
  3. If you have any time remaining time left in class, login to iCivics and play the 3 games listed in your assignments.  If you do not yet have an icivics account, the directions are still listed below.
