Wrapping Up Our Clash of the Culture Champions

posted Nov 24, 2014, 2:16 PM by Warren Wannamaker

During our Thanksgiving-abbreviated week, students will do a few things. 

First, students will work on their last two Power Rankings, for Government and Economy. These paragraphs can be worked on in class or at home, and should be completed by the end of class on Wednesday. 

We'll also be having a quiz, broken up into two parts. The first part concerns our class notes on Government and Economy (students can use the "Things You Should Be Able to Do" part of the Week #3 Activity List as a guide to studying). Students have prepared study tools for this part of the quiz, and should bring them to class. 

The second part of the quiz focuses on the Eight Traits of Culture. Students will be presented with examples of the Eight Traits from this unit, and will need to identify and explain which Trait is being described in each example. 

Students can take these two parts on any two days this week. Some students have already completed one part Monday, and the rest will be completed on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

With the remaining time this week, we'll briefly look at a few other cultures from the Fertile Crescent. Next week, we'll be moving on to our next unit!

Have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!
