Yes, it's the last week of school, but we're still involved in dynamic learning opportunities. Students should have turned their books in by now and will have taken their final exams. Notebooks can be cleaned out.
At the first of the week we'll focus on the "SOCIAL ISSUES" of WORLD HUNGER and CHILD LABOR that not only pervade Africa, but also many areas of Asia that we have studied during the year.
Mid-week we'll shift to debate format,examining a variety of issues that American politicians must address---rapid transit, environmental concerns, benefits for working mothers, social spending, crime, lotteries,legal reform, immigration, socialized medicine, and a number of other political issues. As you know, your middle schooler enjoys expressing his/her opinion.
WEDNESDAY during DEAR we'll read an interesting article called "Smuggled to America" about a teenager whose parents paid to get him out of China and into America in hopes of a better life. He spent years paying for their decision.
