We took notes over the Catholic Church’s response to the Protestant Reformation.

On block day you will need to bring your Renaissance/Reformation packet to turn in, a #2 pencil, and your textbook.

We took notes over the spread of the Reformation.  I also distributed a review sheet for the quotes section of the Renaissance/Reformation test.

The Renaissance/Reformation test is on block day!  You will also have a chance to retake the Renaissance map quiz at that time!

We reviewed samples of vocab quizzes.  We spent much of the period reviewing the early American Revolution.  I also previewed my first VoiceThread (see 9/25).  Let me know what applications for class you see with this tool.
Deadline for make-up work and vocab quiz retakes for 1st quarter is Friday, October 2 at 3:30 p.m.!

We finished watching the last scene on 1776.  Students then worked on Discourse for unit 1 (chapters 7-10).

Check out my new VoiceThread covering important chapter 7 and 8 vocab.  Doesn’t this look like a fun idea for vocab quizzes?

We read Luther’s description of faith and discussed what he meant by that term.  For the last part of the period, students began watching Luther.

Students listened to a recitation of the Declaration of Independence.  After getting vision and hearing screened, we reviewed the DBQ questions.
