Yesterday, students banded together to get an extension on a presentation date they felt was too soon. They not only had an online discussion on our class website last night, but they also put together a petition on their own. They had many signatures on it, which also included two teachers from our school. We let the students present their petition to extend their presentation date until Monday. After hearing their argument, we decided to allow the students to present on Monday. When you become an adult and you want change in the world around you, a petition might be the first place you start! Good work class! Mr. Hong and I were happy to see your political activism today!
1.) BLACK HISTORY PROJECT:
2.) NOVEL APPROACH:
- On Friday, you banded together with your fellow classmates in division 1 and 2 to fight for what you believed in!
- Your belief was that you required extra time to complete and prepare your black history projects/presentations.
- You not only created a petition and had it signed by a large number of people and two teachers, but you did this in a very organized manner. You discussed it online, created a formal petition with signatures, and presented it to your teachers.
- LEARNING INTENTION: I can explain how one person can make change.
1.) Paragraph format (intro, supporting sentences, and conclusion)
2.) Write about something you feel needs to be changed locally or globally and why you think this. (For example: It can be something at school, your community or something like Global warming - think about what Greta Thundberg. Watch this video for some inspiration.)
3.) Provide examples/support on why you think this needs to be changed.
4.) Ask one student a question about their post.
5.) Check your post for the givens/conventions and the criteria above.
Be The Change
