This year we will be having an in-class fieldtrip to the DeKalb research and development of weather studies facility. Last year was a great success and all of the students seemed to enjoy the visit and learn about all of the machines that help predict the weather. Our scheduled date is November 3. Permission forms will be sent home soon. We are planning to be back to the school by 2:45 so that the students will be able to take their normal bus schedules to get home. Along with clothes suitable for the weather, the students should bring a sack lunch along with them for the trip. For any further questions please call the school line for Jen Reincke (815) 1234567 or email her at [email protected] Welcome to my class! My name is Samantha Jones, and I’m the freshman social studies and geography teacher at Smith High School. As a recent graduate of Northern Illinois University, I have created an exciting and modern curriculum that will help the children in Smith better understand the way the world works. We will use multimedia, role-playing, and traditional methods of study. In my free time, I’m also an avid in-line skater and amateur Shakespearian actress. In the summer you can catch me on stage (details to come). I am excited about this new school year and working with each you! This semester much of the focus will be preparing the students to take the US constitution test. We will be testing the students on their knowledge of the bill of rights, knowledge of important Supreme Court cases, and the students’ knowledge of how Congress and the US Senate work and function. Test Dates: 11/12-11/14 This semester we will be also be taking part in mock elections, and also in a mock court case. By allowing the students to participate in these mock events it will help show them what elements are involved in an actual campaign and also what steps lawyers take to prepare for court cases. At the end of the year it is my goal to instill lifelong habits of civic duty, community involvement, and to hopefully make the students more active in the political process as it is something that will affect their daily life.
