We're excited to tell you about what's happening this marking period for all learners at CYMS. Your child's Language Arts and Skills for Digital Age Learners classes are partnering up for the third and final PBL experience of the year. Seventh graders' driving questions will be:
How can we use our “voice” to persuade others and effect positive change in our world?
The eighth graders' driving question is:
How do artists recycle the literary elements of stories to create new narratives?
You may find the attached project overview helpful in understanding what we are asking all learners to do, and in supporting your child during the project. As parents or guardians, you can discuss the project at home, encouraging your child to think hard and ask questions about the topic.
Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about the project!
