You Say You Want a Revolution  Feb 2013
Screen Shot 2013-02-14 at 12.27.56 PM

Click on the video for some images of the beautiful propaganda posters made by Ms. Amandes’ class after studying the Russian Revolution and Russian history…..The umbrella theme of “Revolution” is an important part of the junior high curriculum.  This year we’ve covered Haiti, Russia, Cuba, China and France, as well as others.  This spring each class will learn about the American Revolution and the Constitution.  The 8th graders will see the original founding documents when they travel to Washington, DC, in May.Stopping Points are student-initiated projects at the end of each unit of study.
