Getting ready for our trip!
I wanted to give you a few picture the ninth graders in class preparing for our adventure to China.
Ben and Leon posting about how language can reflect a culture, based upon the book that they are reading for English. The book is called Dreaming in Chinese, written by Deborah Fallows. Each chapter in Dreaming in Chinese is centered around a Chinese word or phrase and talks about how Ms. Fallows observed that idea within Chinese culture.
Rose reading comments that other students have made about the terms from Dreaming in Chinese.
In Human Geography, we are currently working on research projects about various topics related to China. Hopefully I can get some interesting pictures soon for an update on the work they are doing in my class too.
