Black History Month

February is Black History Month, so the middle schoolers are researching important figures in Black history and then creating slideshows on them. They are practicing online research, digital notetaking, and creating visual presentations. At the end of the month, they will use their slideshows as visual aides as they teach their classmates all they've learned.

We are doing similar things in Lower School. The second- and third-grade teachers were looking for more ways for their students to practice synthesizing and presenting information in front of people, so they are working on slideshows as well. Second grade just completed slideshows on different landforms, and third grade is working on presentations on U.S. presidents.
