7th grade has been busy preparing for our trip. We read the novel Lyddie and worked on how Lyddie does or does not portray the Industrial Revolution. We studied Facing History's concept of the Universe of Obligation and decided what our personal Universes are and also what our joint ones are.
From this, we chose issues in the world that we really care about. We then learned the process of making these causes public. We used the process of RIAM to guide us. RIAM stands for Research, Inform, Act and Maintain. We then researched our topics and posted them on our bulletin board.
Currently, we are working on essays about Lyddie!
Here are some photos of our group working diligently.
PS As usual, not all students are in photos every day! Watch this space for more!
