Spanish I Students Impress with Spanish-Speaking Country Project

SPANISH 1 STUDENTS IMPRESS WITH SPANISH-SPEAKING COUNTRY PROJECT
Students in Mrs. Lomba and Ms. Barbosa’s Spanish 1 classes have been researching and learning about the Spanish-speaking world. Students were assigned a paired project where they were given one of the many Spanish-speaking countries to research and present to the class. 

Students could create either a powerpoint, prezi presentation, a poster, a report, or a collage as a final product. Students had to demonstrate creativity and had to give basic information pertaining to the country such as its capital, location, population, typical foods, major imports/exports, currency etc. Overall, Mrs. Lomba and Ms. Barbosa were thrilled with the student projects. Each class voted on the best project all around after student presentations and those students won a prize. Students were extremely creative and fulfilled the expectations of the assignment! Projects were well done and quite impressive.

 Congratulations to winners Bruce Blogref, Ryan Ferrara, Juston Melanson, and Jacob Longe for a job well done!

Students in World History learn about Renaissance

This week in Ms. Beckett’s World History classes students were learning about women and family life during the Renaissance. Students were asked to compare the role of men and women in Renaissance society to today’s standards. Then, students created their own dating advice column for Renaissance readers. They included letters to the editor, descriptions of their first dates, and a “Top 10” list. For instance, one list entitled “10 Things Women Should know to Impress a Man” included qualities such as: beauty, cleverness, ability to read and write well, know how to dance and sing, and know how to perform household duties. The students did a great job thinking creatively about the social status of men and women in the Renaissance. Clearly, none of the ladies wanted to take a time machine back to the Renaissance - they are enjoying their equal rights here in America

Honors Biology Students Complete Cell Analogy Project

Students in Ms. McCabe's Honors Biology class were tasked to come up with a Cell Analogy Project.  Students were responsible to come up with an original topic to use as an analogy for the cell.  There was a list of 10 requirements that needed to be labeled in order to meet the standard.  Here is a picture of the first phase of the assignment.  Their analogy is based on a Sonic Restaurant theme.  Next students will label parts of the restaurant to reflect the cell.
