Marybeth Pacilio’s class has been hard at work researching topics in American history. Each student is creating a profile of a child who lived at a different time and place in history. Once complete, they will present their findings at the end-of-year class dinner and history fair on Thursday, June 4.
The students have also been reading and discussing the labor movement and the lives of children at work during the Industrial Revolution. The students have launched provocative discussions about the difference between a right and a privilege, and the rights that they believe all are entitled to, which will culminate in the writing of their own children’s bill of rights.
