Welcome back to the Civics, Culture, and Community Blog! We didn’t write new posts during the winter break. Now it is January, and we will begin to write new posts again. Happy New Year!!
How often will new posts be up?
This year, you can read one new blog post every other week. That means there will be a new post one week, but not the next week (week 1, not week 2, week 3, not week 4). Posts should be on this website every Monday morning. If there is something specific you want to learn about but you can’t find it on this site, please post a comment or tell your teacher. We will write a topic for you or your class. This blog is for YOU, our ESL students, and we want to write information that will help you.
