Liam gave a talk entitled “The History of Slavery and Racism in America” last week. This came as a culminating project for his social studies work with Sal and O’da. This semester, they’ve been digging into early U.S. history from the arrival of Europeans through emancipation. They used Howard Zinn’s “A Young People’s History of the United States” as their base text, but did a whole lot of reading from other sources. It was fun to hear his talk and to see everything they’ve learned together this semester. We are endlessly grateful for the teaching Marie (art and previously ancient history), Topher (science), Sal and O’da (social studies and ELA) have offered the kids during this unusual year!
