January 25-29 Language Arts

7th graders are continuing to read short stories by underrepresented-Americans.  This is an example of cross-curricular lesson with Social Studies where students are studying the US Constitution, civil rights/civil liberties and periodical instances of injustices and how to rectify it.  In language arts, students read about specific individuals who have encountered injustices, overcame adversity, sought justice and how to live a bi-cultural life in the US.  This will help students to read critically and think critically by using the knowledge from the both classes to build skills and apply them to their video project in Social Studies and essay project in language arts.  Homework for this week will be Wednesday and Thursday.  No assessments this week.

One Point Perspective

Students are learning about the perspective system. They are learning how to represent “real space” in a 2D surface. They have received an introduction to the subject and will now begin to search for a model of their choice. We will be using electronic devices to take pictures of perspective in the school campus. They may also search for examples of “One Point Perspective” they would like to recreate from previous pictures or from the internet.
