Wake up exhausted, head to basketball practice. Not enough time to eat breakfast, late to homeroom and tired at the beginning of first period. Hard to focus on primary sources that my social studies teacher wants me to analyze. Its 8:30 in the morning! What does the Atlantic slave trade have to do with my life? Why does it matter? We have a test on Tuesday!?! At least my teacher linked everything on google classroom so I will be able to study over the weekend. Discussion beginning, sit back and listen to others before commenting..
Our teacher has assigned us a project to work on for the next two weeks. There are plenty of options, but who should I work with? We are supposed to be working in groups of four, but my friends have already formed other groups while I was home sick yesterday. I hope that I don't get assigned to a group where I have to do all the work, maybe the project is specific enough that I will have a defined role. Since I was sick yesterday I am behind, and now I have two nights of homework to finish tonight- stressed!
We have been working on our project for two weeks and it is due in a couple of days. My role is to cover the scientific revolution and I am very nervous about speaking in front of the class. For our newscast, I have to read one news story that lasts at least a minute and a half. Luckily our teacher has given us time this week in class, and has linked a substantial amount of information on our class website covering my topic. Just 3 more days until spring break....!
