Still in the lab today. Students worked as we watched a CNN video about the events of September 11, 2001. Next week we will start looking at the beginning of civilization. In 2 weeks we have IOWA tests, so I will not see the majority of my students. Because of this students will have nearly TWO WEEKS to finish their projects. I expect great things! The beginning of the year is always hectic, four day weeks and testing always interupt the schedule. Things will calm down and become more routine soon. Classes and students have been great to work with, so far...let's keep it up!!!
