Students presented their presentations
Students had one final day to work on their presentations of their final projects. Presentations begin on Monday.
Today was our Skype call with Congressman Scott Peters. Although we did experience some technical difficulties the students were able to ask some great questions about climate change, healthcare and education to Rep. Scott Peters. This was a great opportunity, and I am so glad the students were able to experience this in a way that really highlights their voices matter to our government.
Students were given their Final Project. Students will have the remainder of class time to work on the project. The project has two parts, Part 1 a 5-paragraph reflection essay on what they have learned over the course of the year is due 5/30. Part 2 is a presentation on a topic they wish to expand their knowledge on. Those presentations will begin on June 5.
