Language Arts

We had a fantastic week reading chapters 17-19 of To Kill a Mockingbird as a reader's theater! I was very proud of the insights and questions brought up throughout the week. On Friday, we watched part of the classic film starring Gregory Peck. After break, we will address the verdict of the trial and relate themes of oppression and racial inequality to the present day. It should create some powerful thoughts and discussion. Thanks for all that you do at home to support your amazing children.

U.S. History

This week in U.S. History student began to explore who President Andrew Jackson was a a person by analyzing character traits. We also began to examine his role Native American removal and the atrocities committed during that time by the United States government and its army.

Next week we will finish our analization of Andrew Jackson, culminating in an 80% assignment culminating in the question, "Does Andrew Jackson deserve to be on the $20?" and if not, who should replace him?
