Digital Jigsaw Activity

Mr. Becker's World Geography classes mixed things up by creating a digital jigsaw. Students filmed questions and answers and then shared their videos with the rest of the class. This is a great way to take an old strategy and make it new again. Check out this example from Abby Johns and Anya Coleman!

Padilla had the winning design (shown above).  Click here for the complete list of finalists.

Next Generation Library In Action!

 Mr. Mccallum in collaboration with our fantastic librarians put the Next Generation Library to great use this week!
SPHS Economics students are learning about the history and function of the Federal Reserve by using the Federal Reserve Museum app. After exploring the app, they are working in groups to create a mind map to illustrate their learning. Finally, they are taking a Kahoot quiz to assess what they have learned. Some students had time to create their own currency in the Federal Reserve app. Students are engaged in communicating, collaborating, thinking critically, and being creative!
