Shea's Corona Emails

  • 5/29 Update

    Posted by KATHLEEN SHEA on 5/29/2020

    Hello Seniors!

    This week you get to pick a controversial topic from the website procon.org.  Please select a topic from one of the following categories: Most Popular, Health & Medicine, Education, Politics and Science & Technology.  The only limit I will give you is this:  You can NOT pick the same topic as your final project. 

    Throughout the week, read through all the information this website has on your topic.  Feel free to do further research if you so desire.  By Wednesday, I would like you to send me a pro-con chart with 5 supporting arguments for each side.  By Friday, I would like you to send me a 1-2 page position paper on the topic you selected.  Remember all writing for me must be MLA format. 

    What am I looking for in this position paper?
    1.      An explanation as to why this topic is controversial
    2.      A clear position on the topic
    3.      Specific facts to support your position – minimum of 5 facts, which you then explain.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.  I’m always happy to help. 
    Stay healthy!

    Ms. Shea

    Hello Seniors! 

    This week you will be learning about the School Budget.  This is usually my students’ first chance to
    vote and this year EVERYONE will vote using absentee ballots.  I want you to be an educated voter, so this week’s assignments aim to help you get that education. 

    Tuesday & Wednesday – Complete the School Budgets Comparison 2020 and post your answers in the form online. 
    (The link to the form is right on the assignment document)

    Thursday & Friday – Explore the budget websites from the previous assignment and write a 1 page position paper.  The guidelines for the paper can be found in the document School Budget Position Paper. Please email or share via Office 365 your paper when you have completed it. 

    If you haven’t already done so, PLEASE TURN IN YOUR FINAL PROJECT PRESENTATION!!

    Stay Healthy!
