Google Classroom can be opened on any computer and you will not loose any of the work done and you can continue the work you may have begun in the mobile app. Let’s continue being innovative and learning through new strategies and resources!
The first unit of the year for the eleventh grades is based on World Origin Myths. Reading and analyzing these myths give the students a chance to look at stories from cultures from around the world and look at what we have in common. As the final project of the unit the students have to create an infographic to display what they learned from their myth.
Creating an infographic is no easy feat! First the students chose a myth from the vast array of origin myths worldwide, from the ususal Greek myths to the obscure Caribbean origin stories.After completing the research of the myth, the students received a workshop on how to use the graphic design app Canva. Armed with the research of their myth and the knowledge of the technology to put it all together they set off on the infographic journey. Now what were the results look below and find out!
We are drawing into the last days of the semester. In order to get a head start on reviewing for the final exam ahead, in this post are the links to the outline of topics for the final exam. Remember that the final exams cover topics from the second semester.
Wrapping up the last unit of the semester, you are going to conduct a research project based on some of the characters featured in the play “The Crucible”. As we have discussed in class, some of the characters of “The Crucible” are based on real-life people who lived in Salem during 1962. These people lived through the witch trial and left their mark on American history. It’s your turn now to investigate who these characters from history were and find out if they were portrayed accurately in the play. Taking the role of investigative reporters you will show your classmates the results of your research.
