This is a little later than usual, but it’s been a crazy week! Unit Four the bane of my existence, mostly because I don’t have a lot of resources and I’m usually burnt out at this point.
Week 8, Days 33-37
What was covered this week:
Day 35/36: Polling Two Pager
Day 37: Notes on the political spectrum. I won’t share what I used because it’s not of my creation. As you make your notes, ensure that you are following the CED binder and remind students that it’s generalized information. I know there is a lot of conversation regarding teachers sharing their politics and I think it’s a very personal decision. I do not because in my classroom that information is not relevant. Sure, I have biases like every other human being on earth, but in my classroom, no student should feel like having opposing views of a teacher is a negative thing. I emphasize my classroom because again, this is a very personal decision.
Outside the classroom work: No homework this week.
Overall reflection: Week Nine brings practice tests so we can see where we are at and what we need to work on.
Days Left Until the AP Test: 33 class days
Current Mood: This week was amazing! Between the incredible work, students did on the voting day and being filmed as one of Arizona’s Teacher Spotlights, I am so grateful. It also doesn’t hurt that Spring Break is right around the corner, and we have a two-week break…
