We have just completed two major rounds of PSSA testing, so needless to say, students are very tired! Science PSSAs will follow April 5 and 6. However, history continues to march on. We are transitioning through our unit of Progressivism. We have explored the Social Movements of Civil Rights, Temperance and Suffrage. Teddy Roosevelt has also been a focus of our discussion as he embodied much of the Progressive spirit of the day. We will continue to look at this president through the lens of political cartoons. Encourage your child to become familiar with current events. This will certainly help them in the upcoming high school years. Our unit will end sometime next week or soon after and we will turn our attention to International affairs as they related to the United States.
