May hope for peace and justice fill your days.
A quick update on my nutrition research unit - my two 7th grade classes were in the school library all week. Hectic but productive. A really long week, tiring, but fruitful. Online and book research requirements were basic and not hard to meet. Next week onward to creating and conducting surveys and action research.
Some fun projects with the 8th graders. My "AIS" remedial classes read short stories and poems, stayed on task, focused on figures of speech. (We read "Broken Chain" and "Oranges" by Gary Soto and "The Treasure of Lemon Brown".) My push-in/AIS classes worked on a literary device vocabulary unit, created short teaching skits for the literary devices, and their primary ELA teacher used the Flip Video to record - fun!
