I'm pushing back the due date on research projects to tomorrow. Today I assigned you to do the assignment on StudySync titled Regionalism and Realism. You will find some of this information in the following three assignments helpful to you in doing your research:
Finish whatever you did not have done at the end of class.

Warm up: Prepositions
Check out the checklist and rubric for your research presentations coming up. You can find these, and where to turn in your digital presentation on Google Classroom. Let me know if you have any questions.
You have today and Monday in class to work on your presentations. You will present on Tuesday/Wednesday next week. You will be expected to ask one question during the course of the presentations. That also means, you need to be able to answer questions asked of you as a presenter.

Review blast from yesterday.
Introduction to No Red Ink.
Assign research projects. You will work in groups of 4-5 to do research on a specific topic having to do with our next unit. Today, you need to look at how you will break down your research question into smaller questions that can easily be looked up and answered. Come up with 10 smaller questions per group (about 2 per person).
Go to StudySync and complete: Blast: The Individual. When done, work on No Red Ink. A link with the class code can be found on Google Classroom. Blast is due today. No Red Ink is due Friday morning.
