World Geography with Mr. Akagi

Next week in World Geography, we will conduct a Socratic Seminar on the protests in Hong Kong in China. While this week we learned about the City of Hong Kong, and why so many people are protesting there, on Monday students will have a Socratic Seminar, a discussion among themselves about what should be done about the present situation (as protests are ongoing), and who should control Hong Kong. As a reminder about conduct during our Socratic Seminar Discussions, it will basically all be student led. However, if students are not being courteous to their classmates (being mean or rude to other classmates for their opinions, speaking out of turn, etc.), students will be quickly sent to the Intervention Room, as their behavior would drag down student discussion.


Following our Socratic Seminar on Monday, we will have a project on East Asia from Tuesday-Thursday. The plan is for students to create a brochure about one of the East Asian countries we’ve been studying, and advertise why someone should want to live there. While some of these countries might not be that appealing to live in (i.e. North Korea), students can have an extra challenge of making that country look more appealing to live in, and spin its bad qualities.



Finally, on Friday, we end our Unit on East Asia, and will start our new unit on Southeast Asia!
