This week when I dropped into Sam Nelson's and Carly Bennett's Humanity's class, I found students at work on a variety of activities designed to help them explore some of the key issues that are helping define the campaign. Here are a few photos of what I saw:
|Using the new library whiteboard tables to understand the electoral college system|
|using a chromebook to research information about "swing" states and poll results on various issues|
|reviewing and summarizing articles exploring gender bias in the US|
|The new whiteboard wall highlights a quiz Friday on the issues these students are working to review|
|Breaking down an article on US Immigration - another issue of the campaign|
My walkaround also found a wonderful surprise - an impromptu art project on the walls of Holden created by 8th graders Elsa Lindenmeyr, Delaney Miller-Bottoms and Lena Ashooh. What a great daily reminder of these standards, which are not only important in our daily learning at SCS but will serve as the graduation proficiencies of Act 77 for any students heading on to CVU. Thanks for sharing your talents with us!
