As quickly as summer ended, so did the first marking period! My colleague and I were saying earlier today that November came up almost out of nowhere and we couldn’t believe the end of year is almost here. We have been so busy and the students have been working really hard. Students in US History I began the school year learning about the colonization of the Americas. They examined primary source documents, data, various types of text, and different form of media to understand why Europeans came to America and how geography affected development. Currently, students are learning about life in colonial America and we are leading up to the American Revolution. Earlier this week, students became detectives and investigated the Boston Massacre. They had so much fun! Below are some pictures of my detectives hard at work!
