SS8 – Week of October 18
This week in SS8, we are going to examine a significant transformation that altered the path of history – the creation of the United Nations. As the United Nations is a key organization in promoting positive transformations around the world, it is important for us to understand its origins, the key principles on which it was founded, and its strengths and limitations.
This week-long unit on the UN includes a reading packet, so this will be the first time this year in SS that students have had reading assignments for class and for homework. As students will learn, it will be very important in SS class to be interactive readers. We will discuss and practice highlighting skills, choosing vocabulary, and developing questions about what we read.
