7-8 gr WA State History & 6 gr Bainbridge Is History

Posted by Martha Wells on 1/31/2020 7:50:00 AM

This semester, the class has been divided, as the 7th and 8th graders are working on their high school requirement of completing Washington State History before entering high school. The students will earn a grade, must be engaged in this study for approximately 90 hours, so there will definitely be homework. Each student has been given a copy of the text, The Washington Journey, which will be used throughout the semester, so the students need to bring it to class each session. Also, each student will be responsible to read either an additional novel or non-fiction about WA and to write a concise summary.  I have a few novels that have been approved by BISD that the students may read:The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, The Highest Tide by Jim Lynch, and The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford.  Please know that these books contain some adult themes and language, so if these books don't meet your approval your student may self-select a book, but it must be approved by me.
