TAG Team 5 Spring Update
March 20, 2015
The Wonders of Wahsega 4-H Camp
We are extremely thankful for those of you who were able to attend this trip as a chaperone. We appreciate the time you sacrificed from work and your families and the positive, upbeat attitudes you maintained throughout the trip. It was a blast! For those of you unable to attend, we appreciate you trusting us with your precious kiddos and for making this trip possible for them!
Social Studies & ELA Focus: Podcasts about the Cold War & Civil Rights Movement
In an effort to allow the students more time to write the scripts for their podcast segment, exchange feedback with group members about script content, and record podcasts using GarageBand, I have extended the project one week. The field trip to the BOE has been rescheduled for Friday, April 3. We are expected to meet with members of the NAACP and Office of Civil Rights on Friday, March 27 to discuss current issues of discrimination. All are welcome to join us! You can also follow the sessions on Twitter as students tweet the information they learn from the presenters.
