10th Grade Panel Discussion
November 13, 2015 - November 17, 2015
Students were assigned roles (moderator, participants, etc.) and prepared notecards with factual information related to a topic of their choice. Some groups chose "school issues", steroid/drug use, etc. Students had to create visual aids in their Digital Multimedia and Foundations of Web class to use during the panel discussion. The discussion was held in Mrs. Schaffer's classroom during their English II class period..
Examples of student visual aids include the following:
