Wrapping Up the Year!
Well, they are finally almost here. Yes, I'm talking about semesters. Presenting projects and taking tests takes up those couple days next week. This semester I only have one project and the rest are tests. I have a project in American History. This project involves making a 8-15 minute video and an essay about your topic. Each group got to choose their own topic such as the killing of Osama Bin Laden or Pearl Harbor. My group chose to do Prohibition. We haven't completely figured out how or what we want to do in our video. As for the rest of my classes, we are taking tests. In trigonometry, we are taking just a regular semester test. In American Lit, we are taking a test over the two novels we read which are To Kill A Mockingbird and Of Mice and Men. Our test for chemistry is an essay test. We get to choose our own questions and answer them in complete essay form. Biology 151 is a little bit different instead of a semester test, we take a chapter test. This is only because its a college class not a regular high school class. For journalism, we are finishing putting together the portfolio we started last semester.
That is what my full two days of the end of the year will consist of.
