Part 1: Hero or Zero?
What makes someone a hero? Learners will read different types of short stories each week and complete a character analysis to decide if the character is a “”hero”” or a “”zero.”” Students will think critically, ask questions, and draw conclusions. The course will conclude with the learners creating their own modern-day superhero and constructing a short story about their character.
Part 2: Eloquent Egyptologist
As students go back in time to explore Ancient Egyptian history, they will strive to answer the driving question – How can I bring awareness to untold histories? They will explore Ancient Egypt’s history, culture, and architecture and complete hands-on projects to deepen their understanding and retention. In addition, learners will use persuasive writing to highlight under-researched areas of Egyptian history.
