This week, we will be wrapping up our reading of A Long Walk to Water by writing poetry about the book. Each student will write a poem for two voices that focuses on a theme from the book and shows the perspectives of two different characters.
Socratic Seminar Topics this week...
Class A: How can everyone in school feel included?
The article explains that more young people now are reporting that they feel lonely. In our discussion, we'll discuss potential reasons for that and discuss ways in which we can ensure that everyone in our community feels like they belong.
Class B: Vaccines
The articles explain what viruses are, how vaccines work, and some of the controversy around getting vaccines. Students will share their understanding of how vaccines work and discuss whether or not they should be mandatory.
Here you can find weekly updates about our project work and what's happening in our classroom.
