JessicaMurach The pitch portfolio is a semester long project in which students will research, design, and ultimately pitch a monument or memorial that captures the narrative of an era in American literature and history. The purpose of the project is to get students to consider the semester’s big questions in a tangible way as well as develop a product that has real world implications. Ultimately, students will need to consider how to both commemorate and question our literary works within their larger historical moment, taking into consideration how we might honor prominent voices while simultaneously bring to light the voices that are implicitly and explicitly excluded from our narrative. https://docs.google.com/document/d/17eewUT3WDA6UMatJt70Q_lHKdKLmXhSnEciuePiyDvE/edit?usp=sharing

MeeraGorawaraOften times in Social Studies classes, students are presented with bias texts. They are often forced to come to a single conclusion by the end of the class period. The main point of this activity is to skew middle school students from thinking there is a single way they need to identify captains of industry such as John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie at the time.https://docs.google.com/document/d/1pFU0vP3bsmOfAOiYwWqQNVE5kmTcIeN373avI0vF9TY/edit?usp=sharing
