Attention Students and Families: Access your e-learning activities through your La/Lit folder in your Drive. I will continue to email parents and students on a daily basis too.  If you have any questions as you work through the activities, you can email me at mphillips@emsd63.org from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.  

    Parents: Once your student has completed the designated activities, make sure to record his/her E-Learning Day Attendance through Powerschool.

    Thursday - 4/9/20 
    Please continue to work on your Utopia Project.  Mrs. W and I know that you are doing your best to manage all of the assignments from your teachers (thank you for emailing us), so please don't stress.  This will be due at the end of the day on FRIDAY.  Please follow our "Suggested Goal" to complete it on time.
    Suggested Goal for today:

    Make sure you have completed  and edited slides for the following:

    • Title of utopia
    • Introduction
    • Government
    • Employment 
    • At least 2 of these:
      • Education
      • Family
      • Recreation
    • At least 2 of these:
      • Money
      • Housing
      • Environment
    • At least 1 of these:
      • Transportation
      • Technology

    You can share your slideshow with a classmate and have them peer edit.  

    I shared a document with you entitled "Utopia Project."
    Please open "Utopia Project" in your La/Lit folder in Google Drive and read ALL of the directions.  One more time:  READ ALL OF THE DIRECTIONS!   
    Your job is to design your “perfect world”. Think about the key elements of communities (government, jobs, education, housing, etc). What would these look like in your ideal world? What would life be like for the people who live in your community to make it PERFECT?  

    You are going to share your utopia in a Google Slide presentation. The top topics in the choiceboard are required. You can choose to write about the topics that interest you most from the bottom topics in the choiceboard. For each topic covered, you need to have a picture.

    All 8th grade Zeus students have this project, so if you want to clarify directions with a student from Mrs. Smigaj's class, please do so.  
    If you have any questions, please email me or Mrs. W.
    Have fun, be creative and tailor your Utopia to your likes and interests!!!!!
