Social Studies Weekly
Year 3 Volume 23 ~ March 20, 2016
Last week, the STAY teachers gathered at the Ed Building for a half day of planning. They came up with some good ideas. Emily Bock and Chris Eklund worked on a simulation game for AM2 to teach the early years of containment. Once they pilot it in their classes, it will be placed in Haiku. And, Emma Hendel shared how she uses the musical Hamilton to teach portions of Unit 2 and Unit 3 in American 1. Check out her idea for the election of 1800 here. I hope everyone enjoyed the afternoon.

Message from Melissa
I know many of you have heard that Andy will be leaving our department and moving into the role of Director of Accountability. While we are happy for him, we are sad to see him leave. It has been a great 4 years (nearly). The transition will be difficult but change happens.
