Last week our American Studies class culminated their Constitutional Convention. Led by teachers Brian Reichelt and Steve Lucero, students role played delegates to the convention and were divided into the 13 original states. The proceedings were characterized by and in-depth study of the complex issues that faced the delegates and lively debates, among which representation and slavery were particularly controversial.
As you tell from the pictures, students were thoroughly engaged and enjoyed their learning.
Daniel Pink would point out that students had a relevant experience, learned empathy and worked as a team!
Another example of great teaching and learning at Aloha! Thank you to Brian and Steve!
