Gallery Walk and 9/11

*Don't forget to bring in the "made in ____________" tags.  They're due tomorrow.*

Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday. This is Mr. Helmuth reporting on the day's activities.

Today we continued to study the events of September 11, 2001, and we viewed some of the news clips that chronicled the events "as they happened."

A major goal of class today was to try and understand the events from the point of the individuals.

Following the news clips, we then participated in Mr. Habecker's "gallery walk," in which the students walk around the class viewing different political cartoons from the era. The students answered questions at each of the stations they visited.

An example of a political cartoon can be viewed below:

For the extra credit tonight, discuss with an adult the meaning of the cartoon above. Write this response on a piece of paper, have the adult sign it and turn it in tomorrow. Make sure to include your name and date as well!
