STUDENT NOTICES FOR THE WEEK OF JUNE 1, 2020:  Great work last week.  So, let’s replicate that this week.  I would really like to see some of you who have been ghosts up to this point: never on a MEET or hangout.  I miss you guys, but I know Mrs. Campeau misses you even more.  This week we get through Slavery and begin the Civil War.  Intertwined is the 76th Anniversary of D-DAY.
I WILL BE POSTING A VIDEO IN SUPPORT OF THE DOCUMENTARY AS WELL. IT IS A BIG DEAL.  

I appreciate everyone that has been able to get in to the MEET.  My dedicated time is 11:15-12:00 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.

I will leave the hangout opened because there is a good number that like to interact there. It also seems to work pretty well as a video and message center.  I think it can be used for questions on a smaller scale and I will open it daily from 12:30 AM- 3:00 PM. We will use REMIND as our primary interface. I am liking the flexibility I have doing LOOM videos, let me know what you think.

Yes, I opened a google classroom, but I don’t intend to use it for much for the remainder of the year.  Too many links cause confusion.  YOUR PRIMARY EDUCATIONAL LINK IS RIGHT HERE ON THIS WEB SITE.  THE BEST WEBSITE IN THE WORLD!

PARENTS AND STUDENTS ANY QUESTIONS: EMAIL jrudman@shamongschools.org, THROUGH mygradebook.com, using the contact your teacher tab, ON REMIND, OR THE GOOGLE HANGOUT AS MOST OF YOU HAVE BEEN DOING. We have everyone on the REMIND and 52 on the hangout.

 

INTERACTIVE CONSTITUTION IN THE CLASSROOM

WELCOME TO THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. DON’T WASTE IT.


This is important to understand:
“At what point shall we expect the approach of danger?
By what means shall we fortify against it?
Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow?
Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth(our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander,could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge,in a trial of a thousand years.
At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected?
I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad.

——>If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

<——- ~Abraham Lincoln, [Address Before the Young Men’s Lyceum of Springfield, Illinois (January 27, 1838)].

JUST REMEMBER THIS PLEASE:
“You learn very little in life if all you do is what others tell you to do.”

THIS CLASS is a place to ponder; a place to learn; a place to figure out why people do all the wacky things they do!

Defend the Republic!

“Of every one hundred men they send me, ten shouldn’t even be here. Eighty of them are nothing but targets, nine of them are real fighters – we are lucky to have them, they make the battle. Ahhhh but the one. One of them is a warrior and he will bring the others home.” Heraclitus, 500 BC. GO BIG OR GO HOME!!!

STATEMENT OF THE WEEK: WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE SQUANDER THEIR CHANCE TO BE SUCCESSFUL AND THEN ASK FOR SOMEBODY TO PULL THEM UP FROM THE HOLE THEY DUG FOR THEMSELVES?.

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT:

You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.
~Abraham Lincoln

So, what have we learned in 2075 years? (Apparently not
much!)”The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be
refilled, public debt should be reduced,the arrogance of
officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the
assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest
Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work,
instead of depending on the government.”
