    Greek and Roman News

    Students created Greek and Roman Newspapers using the Online Glogster program. Each class was first divided into two teams. After an editor in chief was selected, the remaining students were given topics to investigate in a small group. Each group researched relevant topics of the Greek and Roman times and then created interactive Glog pages to display their topic. Topics include; Travel and Leisure, World News, Editorials, Sports, and Entertainment.

    Each Groups Glog page was then connected to the front pages of Greek and Roman Times. Students can then easily navigate between newspaper pages.

    When finished with their Glogs, students wrote a script of their topic for a Greek and Roman broadcast. These broadcasts were filmed in our very own Hoover Production studio.

Students worked in the LRC campaign headquarters; comparing and contrasting, writing persuasive speeches, researching facts and creating slogans, and designing buttons and posters for their “candy-date”.  The election is THIS WEEK
