Many of you have stated you wish to seek to understand the standards on a higher level. Reading an article about a topic we are covering and relating it to our current standard is a great way to demonstrate further thought. I used to refer to this as the NNCE. You can now add this to your Cornell Notes or even on an exam or other assignment. It can also be turned in as a separate assignment as long as you are showing me you are connecting what we are studying in class to what's going ion in the world. Feel free to search for an article yourself or you can find one of these and start here.
(I just started this so if you find an article, send it to me and I will link it, giving you credit of course)
