Your Very Own Guidebook – Seville Chapter

February 24, 2011

This week we focused on two separate areas of our trip.  Mr. Doerr talked about the megaliths we’ll encounter in Portugal, and Mrs. Harig discussed the amazing things we’ll see in our first Spanish city – Seville.   This week’s homework will be centered on those two places.

Take your time and research one item from each category below.  Write a few paragraphs in your own words about your topic.  Explain what the thing/place/person is, why they’re important, and how they fit in to history.  DO NOT JUST COPY WIKIPEDIA AND CHANGE A FEW WORDS.    Research your topic until you understand it well enough to write a paragraph in your own words – if you don’t understand a topic, email Mr. Curtis, Mr. Doerr, or Mrs. Harig and we’ll be happy to answer questions until you do understand it.  If you find a topic boring – well, then you picked the wrong topic.  Choose a different one. 

Each 8th grader (and any other TAP kids that want to help) will do some research and fill out the following form.  The best “articles” the TAP teachers receive on each topic will be published in your book.

Please remember to write like you’re submitting this for publication in a book – because you are.

Use correct grammar and spelling (or at least do the best you can) like it’s for a grade – because it is.

Try to avoid that weird text message language that kids use online all the time.  Write in regular English that your grandma could read – because she might.

Make sure you’re 100% happy with your answers before you hit submit.

Do not plagiarize.  That means – use your own words.

Please have your work done and submitted before the next meeting – March 2nd.
