    1. Our ZOOM classes will be in conjunction with Coach Toms’s 7th Grade classes
    2. You can download the ZOOM app on your phone or you can access it on a computer https://www.zoom.us/  
    3. Locate “Join a Meeting”  and enter the following information:

    Office Hours: MWF 8:30-10:30 AM

    I will be available during these hours to answer/respond to emails.  Grades, assignments, how-tos, or anything else you need to speak with me about.  

  2. There is also a bonus opportunity available.  It will be worth 100 BONUS points.  The parish has decided to average your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd  9 weeks grades to get your 4th 9 weeks grade. The bonus points you earn will be averaged in with the 3rd 9 weeks grade.

Good Morning, guys! I hope you are well and staying safe ( and at home!).  Looks like we will be here at least until the end of the month.

I have received some emails indicating that the links are not working.  So….. I want you to go directly to EdPuzzle (EdPuzzle.com), and log in using your google account (see below for classroom codes) (opsb.info).  I have included a chronological order list for you to go by.

Chronological Order: 1-Compromises 2-Kansas/Nebraska Act 3 - Election of 1860 4-Civil War Battles 5-LEGO Civil War 6 - Appomattox Courthouse

Try to have these completed by the end of next week,  Around the 13th, I will post an assignment for our next unit – Reconstruction.

I am including some topics for you to look up.  These range from colonial America through Reconstruction.  I am also including some avenues for you to use to look up these topics.  Lots of these have stories that make our history very colorful.  Dig around!  Discover some cool stories!!

I have created an assignment on Google Classroom for a review of the Civil War.  We were just finishing with the last few battles.  The assignment is ‘Civil War Review’ under Classwork.  There are 6 EdPuzzle videos to watch.  You should be familiar with the format.
