Our grade level meeting this week focused on our current social studies units. We discussed units following the new meeting 'Learning Menu' meeting protocol. Following our 'Appetizer' course we primarily focused on the current work of 201 and 207 for our 'Entree'.
Both rooms are presently talking about civil rights and racism. The units are currently focusing on poetry and writing similes and metaphores. Classes are completing poems about themselves as a starting point. Teachers shared out ideas for where they envisioned their units going. We discussed the possibility of podcasts and poetry slams.
Ms. Hutchinson shared a video from her class where they are currently working on racism themed poetry.
