Emotional Intelligence

Students express themselves verbally, visually, and musically by creating multimodal autobiographies, exchanging ideas with other students and sharing important events in their lives through presentations.

Global Citizenship

The graphic novel Persepolis is set in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. Most students are unaware of the changes associated with the events during that time, but the repercussions of the revolution are still being felt throughout the world. Students in the United States therefore need to gain background information on Iran in order to appreciate more fully the experiences of Marjane, the main character of Persepolis. In this lesson, students work in small groups to research a specific topic related to Iran, using a WebQuest to focus their research on relevant and reliable information. After the research is complete, students present their information to the class through a technology-enhanced presentation.


In this unit, students become active archivists, gathering photos, artifacts, and stories for a museum exhibit that highlights one decade in their school�s history.

Problem Solving

Students use the elements of persuasion for a specific audience to demonstrate their understanding of Richard Wright�'s accessible and engaging coming-of-age novel, Rite of Passage. Students are also exposed to the technology of Cube Creator. By using their problem solving skills, they must come up with a plan (for a judge) for the protagonist.
