Q: Mrs. Glenn, do you believe there is a big jump between the technology used in 6th grade and 7th grade?
A:This year we've created i-Movies, Excel spreadsheets and charts, and Podcasts. We've used digital cameras and professional lighting to photograph the memorabilia in our classroom to create a Virtual Museum. We've just recently received a SMART Board and I'm looking forward to those adventures. So, Advanced Content Social Studies students can expect a high lever of technology integration in their classroom.
