Update: 11/19

Grade 7 students have been working through a thematic unit called: "Your Vote, Your Voice." This unit is focused on issues related to democracy, freedom of speech and expression, etc.
We began by reading an excerpt of Twelve Angry Men. Next we turned to a short story, "The Fan Club" by Rona Maynard.
This week we are exploring alternative views of the first Thanksgiving and whether depictions such as this one portray the complete picture.
