Help Our Class Earn $100!

Due to us being a sustainable NJ for school certified school we are given an opportunity to earn $100 for our classroom. This will help us buy toner for our classroom printer. The students use the classroom printer for research papers, projects, science fair, club events, resumes, and college applications.

Please watch the 1-minute video below. After watching the video on YouTube, please “Like” the video, and leave a comment with the teacher’s name, school, and any feedback/questions you have.

Happy Holidays from BMAHS!

We are in the last days of 2018 and ready for winter break! My classroom is filled with the sounds of students laughing, sharing their secret Santa gifts, and music. They truly are in the holiday spirit of giving. Yesterday, the Red Cross Club hosted a blood drive. Students and staff volunteered and donated blood. This time of year, the supply is low and student blood drives are one of the ways the Red Cross keeps up with their supply. During an exposures presentation, a representative from the Red Cross said that one pint of donated blood can save up to three lives. Our students truly go above and beyond for their community and we are so proud of them. In the latest issue of Brimm News!, we welcomed our new Lead Educator, Mr. Jesus Urdiales and the Class of 2019 celebrated homecoming. As we close out 2018, happy holidays from all of us at Brimm Medical Arts High School.

US History II Creates and Presents

img_0641

Students in US History II began the year with two projects. First, students selected a famous person of their choice to research and present. We had a variety of people including Beethoven, Larry Bird, Barack Obama, Oprah, and Claude Brown.  It was great to start the year with a creative tone. Next, students studied the Reconstruction Era by examining primary sources. Students compared Lincoln’s, Johnson’s and Stevens’ plan for Reconstruction and then created their own Reconstruction Plan. The next part of the unit focused on the rise of industry, immigration, and urbanization. As the marking period ended, students began studying the Progressive Era and will end with World War I. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the United States entering World War I and I’m excited to share new information and resources, including passages from Michael Kazin’s book, War Against War, which details accounts of the Americans who opposed the United States from entering the war and the story of the Christmas Day Truce.
