Everything this week is centered around either teaching research or doing research. I'm exited that I was able to do a project that I can use for the Historical Fiction Unit this year.

What I learned this week, along with my victories and defeats involving my schoolwork.
It's been another exciting week here. I was quietly laughing about one of my assignments this week. I learned what a makerspace is from a little online Googling.
