Last week we narrowed down our topics for the Inquiry Quest and began researching topics for viability. This week we are gathering evidence around specific areas related to our topics. Several 8th graders are impacted by the schedule adjustments that we needed to make for the Mock Senate in US History. Everyone will have equitable time to finish their work.
