Cognizant Information 
Students should have a binder with dividers by subjects which will consist of their: homework assignments and correspondences from their teachers or school. Therefore, students MUST HAVE their binder daily in order to be organized. Students' test will mirror information from their homework, class assignments stapled in their notebook, and in class resource books. Social Studies has changed quite a bit. It is more technology driven.

Content: Students in third grade focus on Louisiana in many aspects, from its geography to the government. With a solid foundation of each content area, students will be ready to move more in-depth concepts developed at higher grade levels. Students explain how society, the environment, the political and economic landscape, and historical events influence perspectives, values, traditions, and ideas. To accomplish this, they:

Use key questions to build understanding of content through multiple sources

• Corroborate sources and evaluate evidence by considering author, occasion, and purpose

Claims: Students develop and express claims through discussions and writing which examine the impact of relationships between ideas, people, and events across time and place. At this level, students are beginning to look at more authentic sources as a foundation and move away from reliance on texts in order to develop claims. To accomplish this, they

Recognize recurring themes and patterns in history, geography, economics, and civics

• Evaluate the causes and consequences of events and developments

Content Focus

  • Geography of Louisiana
  • Natives, settlers, and growth of Louisiana and its culture
  • Louisiana's government, role, and economics

 

Document-based questions (DBQ), maps, timelines, projects, sample tasks , short and extended responses, constructed responses, multiple-choice/multiple select(selected response) etc.

 

Assigned Grades: Test/Quizzes, Homework, Projects,
 Class Work, and Class Participation

Image result for rememberHomework is essential and must be completed to your child's best ability. Homework will count as a grade every nine weeks. I expect nothing but the best from all my students, so parents please stress to your child the benefits and importance of doing their homework. 

It challenges, enhances, and show their capabilities.
Moreover, it gives you a glance at what your child is learning and expose to in their class daily. 

Education is the key to success no matter what we desire to become in life.
Encourage learning at all times...It pays to know something in all subject areas. It takes our children farther than we can imagine.
