June is a busy month with days off and such. Here is a copy of the calendar for middle school. You should be getting a paper copy in advisory as well but make sure you take a look.
Make a packet of your work from this unit to prepare for your test next week.
- If you didn’t finish adding 3/5 Compromise to your elements of the Constitution chart, then please do so for homework (7-1)
- In class, we made a list of limits and balances in the Constitution. For each item on the list, explain specifically how it accomplished the goal of creating an effective, limited government. I will ask you on this upcoming test to write a short essay about this so please take time to do a good job and bring in the questions you have.
- Unit test on the creating governments unit on Thursday, June 2nd (7-3) and Friday, June 3rd (7-2 and 7-1). We will look over our test review sheets next class to go over what you need to know and study to prepare for the test.

Electoral College Math
Last week, we got to view 10th grade students’ personal project presentations. There were a few that my advisory got to view in room 304 that had some links the students wanted to share. I am posting those links here.
1. Amelia Chen wrote a cookbook based on the recipes she learned from her family and friends. You can download that here.
2. Daniel Wolzcuk made a couple of different games using scratch to help test and improve your memory.
3. Yashna Ahmed wrote a blog about her knee injury and recovery. She will continue updating it after the project.
Write a body paragraph taking a position on the GQ: Should continue using the electoral college system to elect the President? Don’t simply summarize the list we put up in class. Develop your own position based on the work we did and develop it like a proper body paragraph with a topic sentence, evidence (no citations needed), and a connection between your evidence and your topic sentence. You can discuss counter arguments as well but try not to make it too long.
