Sorry for the posting delay... we're plugged in!

This was the scene out of my 7th grade GT class today.

My 7th grade classes recently read The Giver. As part of their previous project, they choose a scentific element out of the novel to explore. Several groups choose the death penalty, growth hormones, climate change, etc. For their last assignment, they create a graphic novel about their endeavors.

Our current assignment has them focusing on persuasive writing. Each group is currently researching their topic and formulating a "pro" or "con" written argument. Today, they groups were plugged into our online library date base, reading through credible sources, and finding atleast 5 for the task at hand.

Most students used:
*Safari (for internet)
*Google Docs (to store their citations and notes)
