HI, I'm Mrs. Vanek. I teach 6th Grade World Cultures and 7th Grade Texas History. My classroom is Room #147 and my conference time is from 11:32-12:24. Please call or email any time, or schedule to come by for a conference. And don't forget to sign up for my classes in Remind.
CURRENT EVENTS - 6th Grade
Once a six weeks, students must bring a current event for Social Studies. This may be in the form of a newspaper or magazine article, or an Internet site. These articles must pertain to Social Studies (economy, government, geography, culture, etc.). This is a TEST grade.
Each six weeks there will be a Google Classroom assignment created for students to post their web-based current events. School@Home students will have to post their articles to this site. Upload a link to the assignment, or if you are using a printed article, scan or photograph it and attach it in Google Classroom.
TEXAS AR BOOKS
In the 2021 school year, we will be reading two class novels that are historical fiction related to Texas. They will be done in the 3rd and 5th six weeks. These will be in-class projects, and the AR test will be taken at the end of the reading and used as a TEST grade in the grade book. Most of this project will be done in class, with activities throughout the novel to check for students' understanding. These activities will be Daily grades.
