Students in eighth grade humanities spent the week before Winter Vacation working hard on their culminating project for the semester,Today and Yesterday documentary films.  Students were asked to research a modern day issue and draw parallels between today and the Industrial Era. Students needed to use their research, writing and technology skills to create documentary movies that include narration and images to convey both their topic and the connection between the different historical periods. All of the films included an impressive amount of information on their topic and created a polished finished product. They should be very proud of their efforts, and we hope you’ll check them out here!
