__________________________________________________________________________________                                                                                1/15 – Monday – Martin Luther King Day – 

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today!

I have a dream that one day, down in Alabama, with its vicious racists, with its governor having his lips dripping with the words of “interposition” and “nullification” — one day right there in Alabama little black boys and black girls will be able to join hands with little white boys and white girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today!

Main focus:   
1.  To identify the 4 families of elements and their basic properties.

2.  To identify the elements that are solids, liquids, and gases at STP.

3.  To plot a graph of electronegativity, ionization energy, and atomic radii vs atomic                      number.

4. To identify that Table S is a resource that can provide values of electronegativity,                       ionization energy, and atomic radii.

Period  7:

Dimitr Song!

1. Homework Review of Periodic Form 3

2. Complete “pull out’ periodic table activity

        a) add liquids, gases at STP in table

        b) add families

3.  Introduce a practice question:

Given the following excerpt of the periodic table:

Which element N or Cl has a greater electronegativity?

Is there a place to answer this question if our prediction from our understanding of the periodic trends do not give a clear concise answer?
