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.
El tema a estudiar será El Proceso de votación en Honduras. La tarea para esta semana será: investigar cuales son los partidos políticos y sus principales candidatos para la presidencia. Ambas secciones la entregarán el día viernes.
On this week we will be working alternately with Beginner Level, who are still covering a general review, and Intermediate and Advanced Level who will move on to new lessons.
