Homework for 1/12, Resources, and the Next SRC

Greetings, students and parents!

Happy Monday!  A couple of important items...

Homework for tonight and the next several nights...all students have received (or in the case of Period D, will receive tomorrow) a packet of articles relating to the pros and cons of competitive sports for kids.  We will be spending the next few days fleshing out these articles and finding evidence for both sides of the competitive sports argument.  Students began this process in class today, and have been instructed to continue working on it at home.  I would suggest that they spend about 20-30 minutes on it each night for the next several nights.

In addition to the articles I provided in the packet, there are some video resources that I invite and encourage students to check out.  It would be a good idea to write down some key points as they watch.  The links to the videos are below.

One final item.  The fourth SRC of the marking period is due THIS FRIDAY, 1/16, and any story rewrites/resubmissions are ALSO due FRIDAY.

Have a wonderful day!
