The second week of school for the juniors of G17 featured a variety of activities that set them up for the coming unit and school year. Students learned about article of the week and organizational expectations for the school year. They accessed the technology resources that we will use throughout the year and completed their first writing assignment about a personal belief. Students ended the week by considering values and the impact of culture on our understanding and formation of values.
In the coming week, students will dig into the concept of “perspective,” considering how our individual perspectives impact the values that we hold. We will be introduced to our first major paper, the Generation Essay, and we will prepare to complete the essay by learning about interviewing skills and “chunking” major tasks.
