News from Sal’s Class

January 9, 2014

The Western Civ class also deserves congratulations
for their organization of a magnificent Roman Culture
day, which included a delicious banquet of authentic
ancient dishes and some interesting presentations
about Roman entertainment and Roman family life. We
have now moved on to the Dark Ages and the class is
eager to begin its studies of Viking culture.
In The American Century, the students said goodbye
to the 1920s by designing newspapers that included
stories, pictures and adverts from throughout the
decade. They did a terrific job of capturing the
tension between the birth of the modern age and the
determined conservatism of the heartland. We are now
learning about the Thirties and they will be writing an
essay comparing the causes of the Depression with
those of the Great Recession.
