Today my American Government classes wrapped up our unit on Democracy and Education. We started the class by viewing and commenting on the digital stories that students made to communicate unique ideas about democracy and education at this moment in Philadelphia. Students had done a great job of creating work that is poignant, insightful, and ready to be shared with a larger public audience.
To close the unit students shared a final thought about their learning and/or thinking about the issues. Students spoke of a range of topics. Most interesting to me was a student who spoke about education as an issue that is not often thought about but now he sees education as something that needs to be studied and more deeply examined.
