Introduction

6th and 7th Grade

In 6th and 7th Grade, we've been going over an introduction of the course. We begin the course by discussing digital citizenship and during the first few cycles we dig deeper into many of the topics. We've already had some great discussion as to what is/is not appropriate to post on social media. We're going to dig deeper and deeper into that topic as the course progresses. 



Furthermore, and as an introductory activity, some of the classes have been able to create their very own Wordles. I asked them some questions such as hobbies, favorite sport, pet peeve, etc., and the students put together some beautiful word clouds. I've included some samples below. 


8th Grade

In 8th Grade Spanish, the students were asked to put together a list of 25 things they love. We're going to take that list and create a video - complete with music, text and images, that illustrate all of the things they love. Samples of those will be forthcoming.
