Welcome to 8th grade Integrated Exploratory
We have kicked off our "Blasting Stereotypes" unit that began with vocabulary and a discussion of some commonly heard stereotype statements. Students then had to select 2 stereotypes that they now should explain why they chose them and what negative impact comes with each stereotype. Next, they are getting used to a variety of search engines that will help them understand that there are more places to research than merely Google. Next we will begin using search techniques to collect facts that will disprove their stereotypes, which will then be used to pitch an idea for a public service announcement.
