*Looked at student formatives. Disappointed that students did not follow feedback that was given yesterday. Students need to have complete sentences in their outline. Many students did not bother to revise so their time in class was wasted making corrections instead of working on their visual. Also, they need to look at their notes from Tuesday and the readings we went over for correct information.

Homework:

1. Pop up book page is due at the end of the period tomorrow. Tonight they should:

a. Type out the headings

b. Type out the political, social and economic effects (use the organizer that I looked at)

c. Draw out picture only of Before and After

2. See yesterday's blog for example.

HINTS: IFYOU USE MICROSOFT WORD, CHANGE THE MARGINS.

In Class:

*Checked formatives of students. Gave feedback to students:

Comments: 1. Complete sentences (e.g., subsistence economy ----> Hawaiians used a subsistence economy in the past.); 2. Look at notes from yesterday. Students were still getting their facts mixed up. It starts with looking at the notes and the readings. 3. Political: Abolishment of Kapu System or the chiefs and the sandalwood example.

*Collected Teenbiz reports for History of Hula. Students were given a day to turn in reports. They needed to check Edline yesterday if they saw a missing assignment.
