Today in 7th grade Social Studies, students watched a PBS documentary regarding the events of September 11th 2001. The classes took part in many thoughtful discussions about that day. For homework tonight, students must write a minimum of one paragraph (5-7 sentences) explaining how they felt about the video and/or the events of 9/11. Students will hand the assignment in tomorrow during class.
