Cross-Content & Community Connections
Lesson Plan Created by Rebecca Harwood
While reading Lord of the Flies, I used the app Post-it Plus to visually categorize an activity focused on curriculum and community. I had students group up and work to connect the text to themselves, their community, and history. I believe that establishing this open and curious environment, students will be more able to think critically and connect themes across curriculums.
Meaningful Knowledge & Connections
Lesson Plan Created by Kristalyn Musselman
In order to have my students develop both a deeper knowledge of health and English, I created a Relationship Bill of Rights. This list (pictured below) is a culmination of examples of rights my students believe they should have in a relationship. By doing this, I am helping my students to develop a deeper understanding of not only my content area, but the connections that the content areas have in a very meaningful way. I hung this list up in the freshman wing so all students could see it.
