A look inside Mosaic Social Studies

In social studies, Mosaic students are learning to think like social scientists and function as active citizens. This trimester they will explore human rights in the context of different historical events. To start their exploration, students chose the area of human rights that they were most interested in, and then they were organized into groups based on those interests. The image above depicts students collaborating to develop a driving question and an idea for their trimester-long project. They will spend the rest of the year building from their own inquiry and incorporating class activities to create relevance and interpret meaning.
