Social Studies this Week
Middle school students did a great job with their creative projects last week. I loved seeing the photos and slideshows they put together to share their learning!
This week, students are learning about the tumultuous end of the 1960s, Vietnam, and the early years of the 1970s. We have had two live classes to visit about these topics, and students are tasked for Thursday with identifying and sharing about a primary source that connects with this era. On Friday, middle school students are continuing to work on their larger research projects representing an area of interest in the second half of the 20th century. They are drawing closer to wrapping those up and sharing their final products. Next week, students will finalize those projects and continue with live classes to discuss important events of the 1970s and 1980s.
High school students are also closing in on finalizing their research projects and are preparing to turn in drafts and bibliographies to represent their recent work and learning.
