February 2016 Student Portfolio
Kaitlyn works very hard and she is a good student. She has become more self-confident and actively participates in class discussions. We will be working on developing her expository writing and presentation skills for the rest of the year. We will concentrate on writing structure, development of a thesis, using evidence to support the thesis, and formatting (citations, bibliography, etc.) as she develops her individual voice.
We have finished our unit about the Enlightenment philosophers and we will begin a new unit about the Holocaust. The students will be learning about the use of propaganda and its impact upon the people of Germany. We also will read Night, written by Elie Weisel. The unit will prepare our students for a field trip on Friday, March 31st to the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach, the Wolfsonian FIU Museum, and a performance of the opera The Passenger, which is about the Holocaust. At the Wolfsonian FIU Museum, the students will be participating in a program that includes examining artifacts that were used for propaganda during WWII.
