Relocation Guides

For the last few weeks we have been working on a performance task which we have all created a ‘City Relocation Guide‘. We chose a city based on previous knowledge or interest, and have been working hard writing, researching, editing, and creating to make our finished guides. Different articles in the city guides are past to present, anecdotes, introduction (persuasive), changing of landscape, things not to miss, basic facts, population and resources, and a city map with pictures… A LOT of work! This project has helped us in English and Social Studies with writing and researching. Take a look at our guides and see if you’ll be ‘hooked!‘ by our work!

Celebrating Wellness

Check a few great samples videos  from Mrs. Thompson’s Wellness class dealing with the issue of Bullying.

“In groups of three or four, students composed public service announcements in the form of short skits on the topic of bullying.  Each group concentrated on portraying one type of bullying and an appropriate strategy to deal with bullying.    After practicing their skits, students (made) short videos documenting their work.”
