Week Four Virtually
We have had an interesting, yet fun three weeks of virtual learning together. The students have done an excellent job being on Zoom and working on their assignments. This upcoming week, we will continue diving deeper into the Harlem Renaissance by looking at major figures, some works of literature, and even some 1920s Mob Stories.
Please encourage your Champion(s) to continue in their diligence of working and attendance to class through Zoom. We are almost at the finish line and we can do it!!!!!!
All assignments are due by 11:59pm each night, so please get those done or reach out to Mr. Fleming to get a possible extension or grace period.
A Taste of Harlem, New York
In February, scholars will begin working on a project I do every year dealing with Black History. This year I will be doing it from the historical perspective instead of the literary aspect. Scholars will be working on this assignment in class, but it will focus on aspects of Historically Black Colleges/Universities, Major Figures, Politicians, and Organizations.
These presentations will begin on February 23rd, 24th, 25th, and 26th. We will go over the guidelines sheet on February 12th in class.
The Roaring Twenties Intro Video
Here is a clip of our introduction for the next unit. This will also be shown in class to the scholars.
Our next unit will feature the Harlem Renaissance, World War One, the Roaring 20s, and The New Deal. This unit will begin from January 19th and will conclude on February 26th, 2021.
In this unit, scholars will be watching the movie Annie, completing their Harlem Renaissance Project, and evaluating the impacts of Germany from World War One. This unit will be more informational compared to the last few units.
Never underestimate the power of a teacher who genuinely cares for his or her students.
Oh the possibility of learning something new and growing from one level to the next. Learning may not always be easy, but it is ALWAYS FUN!!!!!!!!
