Social Studies

We will be reading and discussing the “Epic of Gilgamesh” and analyzing Literature.  We will learn to identify, describe and speculate  Data Based Questions.  We will then be analyzing Hammurabi’s Code to explore the idea of fairness-what is “just” by asking if the students think the punishments and rewards that made up Hammurabi’s Code.  We will also be learning how to write an argumentative essay focusing on purpose and focus, organization, evidence and conventions.

Have a great week.
