Students will complete a writing activity based on the prompt: "How I felt on the first day of school" using photos of different emotions.
Students will perform a webquest on the Tulsa Riots of 1921 and other historic tragedies as well as perform comparisons. Critical thinking will allow students to develop a deeper understanding of tragedies and consider approaches to societal problems through discussion and presentation.
