These past two weeks, we presented our Stopping Points. Stopping Points are presentations that students give, focused on one topic. This time, the Stopping Point topic was African American Civil Rights. Each student chose a sub topic and then made an artifact. Examples of artifacts are movies, models, and posters.
Here are some pictures of students presenting their stopping points.
Nina presenting her Stopping Point on stop and frisks. She made a movie explaining what a stop and frisk is.
Jeanne and Greta presenting their Stopping Point on the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombing. They made a model of the church.
Owen made a movie, explaining the Black Panthers’ goals and history.
Aidan and Marwan’s Stopping Point was on the Ku Klux Klan. They made a movie with clips of interviews of KKK members included in it.
Angelina and Ana’s presentation was on the 13th amendment. They made a cake with the American flag on it.
Everyone learned a lot from listening to people’s presentations. While the eighth graders at Montessori Model United Nations, or MMUN, and are interning, the seventh graders are assigned another Stopping Point to work on. This Stopping Point’s topic is women’s rights. I can’t wait to see what great ideas the seventh graders have!
