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.

 

 

Brimm in the Community

Hello students, families, staff and alumni! My name is Faye Johnson and I am one of the social studies teachers at Brimm Medical Arts High School. In addition, I am the BrimmNews! Club advisor. One of our goals is to share some of the wonderful things happening at Brimm throughout the year. We will be publishing a newsletter to keep you informed and highlight students, staff and events. I hope you enjoy our first issue. Thank you all for your ongoing support! To read an online version of the newsletter click here. Below is a picture of the Chowhounds event held at Brimm on October 28. Thanks to the students and Ms. Luke, students were able to provide free food and veterinary services to the beloved pets of Camden City residents.
