Eighth Grade Exhibition: North Salem Mission at Work
Eighth Grade Exhibition Program Information
On May 20, 8th grade students and teachers displayed the many opportunities
to use creative and critical thinking to solve problems that occurred
throughout the school year. One highlight was the interdisciplinary
English/Social Studies problem to solve, "What is missing in DC?" Students
presented their original designs for a new monument to be added to our
nation's capitol. Some of the monument are pictured below.
To learn about Digital Citizenship, ask an 8th grader!
This year, eighth grade students were asked "What makes a good Digital
Citizen?" To begin to answer this question, both eighth grade students
and parents were asked to complete a survey about their or their child's
internet use. The results of the survey showed that time spent online,
digital footprint, cyberbullying, online safety and online stereotypes
were both parents' and students' biggest concerns. Students were then
paired up with a peer to research one of these topics. The next step in
the process was to discover how to best convey the information they
learned to each other and the greater public. It was decided that
students would create a website about Digital Citizenship as well as
T-shirts that share a positive message about Digital Citizenship. With
the support of the Foundation for Learning, all eighth grade students
received a t-shirt that displayed their design.
