Students in 7th grade language arts just finished reading The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton.  As they read, they annotated their books, looking for examples representing three major themes.  After finishing their reading, they then wrote an essay, using text examples to show which theme they thought was strongest in the book.

In 7th grade social studies our students are learning about GDP (gross domestic product), per capita GDP (per person GDP), and standard of living. They learned the definitions then went to the World Bank website and looked up ten countries to compare the numbers and draw conclusions as to the possible overall strength of the economies, ranking them in the order they think they should be in. We discussed the varying factors in determining standard of living and how numbers can compare and tell you a story about each country.

These guys had quite a disscussion while dividing up their homemade pizza. They decided it was too difficult to cut it into 10 pieces so they cut it into lots of squares. Math, communication, problem solving all in a few minutes in FACS class!

In 7th grade social studies we did a three station rotation to learn about the Islamic religion. At one station they watched Makkah Live, the 24/7 Livestream from the Kaaba in Mecca. The students watched Muslims worshipping and recorded their observations. Another station was a comparison of holy books. They read the story of Moses and the Burning Bush from the Bible and from the Quran and compared the wording and the way the story was told. At the third station they worked in teams to create a Five Pillars of Islam "storybook" to summarize the meanings of the Five Pillars. The students had a lot of fun and really good conversation was generated while they watched the worship at the Kaaba.
