Week 2 (9.8 - 9.12)

Week in Review

Portfolio work, WE DAY!, 9/11, Current Events, and More!

9.8.14 - Students learned about primary and secondary sources. We watched a series of YouTube videos (and part of The Cosby Show) to help illustrate the difference.


9.9.14 - Students worked on Portfolio #1 and had class time to complete it.


9.10.14 - Students were introduced to WE DAY and were shown how they can earn a ticket to it. WE DAY will be November 12, 2014.


9.11.14 - We commemorated the 13th anniversary of the attacks of 9/11 by watching parts of a powerful documentary that contained the only known footage inside the towers and gave a powerful account from the firefighters who were in Tower 1.


9.12.14 - Students watched Channel One news and recorded three current events (ask them about the newest and largest dinosaur discovered in Argentina). Portfolios were graded and returned to students. We continued our discussion on 9/11, it was great to hear the stories that they shared from the parents' perspectives. Sounds like there was some good dinner conversation last night!


Enjoy the weekend!
