Eighth Grade Begins Unit About Social Media

This week, all eighth-graders will participate in a mini-interdisciplinary unit on social media and its potentially harmful effects.
To kick off the unit, students will watch the recent Netflix documentary The Social Dilemma. One overarching essential question that will be addressed throughout the unit is “In a world where we are bombarded by other people trying to define us, how do we make decisions for ourselves?”Then, in their core classes, students will engage in thought-provoking discussions and activities specific to each subject area. A description of course-specific questions and activities can be found in the class updates below.

We encourage all parents to watch the documentary as well so that they can share in the conversation at home.
