Black History Month Presentations!

The Middle Schoolers just finished their Black History Month projects. These projects required them to research an assigned person, synthesize what they learned, cite their sources, design an effective slideshow (this included choosing good fonts and colors, designing slides with intent, using photos and videos effectively, and using limited text appropriately), and presenting well—and, perhaps most importantly, it required them to be responsible, manage their time, collaborate with me on an ongoing basis, and advocate for themselves in terms of using the computer lab outside of school hours, working at home, etc.

Words don't do these justice. Check out the videos on the St. James Facebook page; we livestreamed them!
