Senior Term List

I have posted the second set of terms and questions on the American Civil War and Reconstruction on the IBHOTA website. It will be due sometime at the end of January. The detailed nine week schedule will be up Monday. Grading and IA reading continues amid Christmas and New Year festivities. The CAS binders, well, they’re there in three neat stacks, mocking me. Happy New Year to all!

Senior CAS Portfolios

I absolutely must have all of the senior CAS draft portfolios by tomorrow. As I explained to the first and fifth period TOK classes, I will be holding the CAS portfolios at home over the break, when I will be reading all of them carefully and marking demonstrated learning outcomes on the rubric. At the end of the break, I will bring the portfolios back to school, and Mrs. Kraft will read them. You will have the CAS portfolios back by the end of January. You will need to update the portfolios through March as you complete your CAS.

For students who neglected to copy materials needed for Bright Futures applications, I will have the portfolios at school for the rest of the week, but the portfolios themselves will not leave my classroom. As of Friday afternoon, I will be taking the CAS portfolios home, and they will be unavailable until Mrs. Kraft is finished reading them in January.

IB History of the Americas Term Quiz Rescheduled

Seniors,

This is to confirm that I will be delivering the last lecture of the nine weeks tomorrow instead of having the term quiz. There will be a class discussion Monday concerning the causes of the Civil War, and the term quiz will be held on Tuesday. The term list and review questions will be due Tuesday. I will grade at least the term list during the day so that I can return it to you by the end of school to use as a study aid for Wednesday’s exam. If your term list and questions are already done, good–you will have them to study over the weekend.
