Projects (finished and continuing)

Mr. Brocki's and Mrs. Allen's Biology students have "dipped their toes" into APA citation by reading an article, creating the citation, and then creating two parenthetical citations for the article. Then they posted it on their wikispaces page. Check out their guide at

Mrs. Parson's/Mr. Babb's American Studies students are creating a voicethread to introduce a classmate. This allows them to practice synthesis, using primary source pictures, and presentation skills - all 21st century skills. Check out the guide at

Ms. Warrick's Spanish I classes came for to look for a resource to support a reason to learn a foreign language. They learned how to evaluate websites. Check out the guide at

Ms. Norris' students stopped by to work on their awesome Visigoth/Athenian posters. We had some visitors from Mr. Bruce's and Ms. Forbis' classes, as well, as students have been working on set design.
