Students were required to conduct research on a social crisis of their choice. They had to locate sources, assess their credibility, gather relevant evidence on various aspects of the crisis, and use that research to create two products (an informative brochure and an audio recording presentation). Kaitlyn chose to focus on school shootings, specifically the Columbine Shooting, and created a fantastic brochure and verbal explanation.
Kyle's work on this assignment was fantastic! The answers to all of the questions were very well thought out and written. I was equally impressed with the graphs that he created.
Megan did an outstanding job on her "Buying a House with a Mortgage" project. Students selected a local home that they would like to own that was currently for sale and determined the cost of the house, down payment, points at closing, mortgage payment, taxes and insurance, total cost of the home over 30 years and how much of their first payment went toward the principal balance. Great job Megan!
