Captain, Crew, Owners & Author
Today, students participated in a "Naval Review Board Hearing" where a ship captain's rights were put on trial. Should they continue to have nearly unlimited power? Should they be allowed to whip their crew? Should they be allowed to say whatever they want, no matter how it makes others feel? Listen to the videos to find out!
Spoiler alert! The Naval Review Board's decision is below!
I just wanted to let you know about a few activities/events that are upcoming in our classroom. This will give you an opportunity to ask your child about what they learned or if they had any fun while doing them!
Hope all is well with everyone - talk soon!

Just a reminder that your child will be participating in the yearly Erin's Law presentation on Tuesday, January 24th.
Ask your child about our culminating activity that demonstrated how America won the Revolutionary War! We focused on about eight aspects of the war, including things that affected the British side. Hopefully, students were able to express those factors in their video on their ePortfolios!
Below their video, they have been asked to explain any mistakes that they may have made in their video in writing.
