Current Events class added to AJHS curriculum

Posted: Tuesday, Sep 17th, 2013

The new Current Events class at AJHS recently discussed the anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.

AMBOY – What’s new at Amboy Junior High? Well...ask the new current events class! Current Events has come to Amboy Junior High School. This is a new course that is being offered to all students as a rotation class, which means it will be taught for nine weeks by Mrs. Stacey Dinges and Mrs, Shauna Dinges. The class keeps students updated in local, state and world news while aligning lessons to the Illinois Common Core Standards.

Last week, in honor of the 12th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, the seventh and eighth grade students interviewed people, asking them where they were when the attack happened. Students then discussed the answers and ended the week by making Tagxedo’s to represent the responses from the interviews.

The current events classes are also announcing the news to the school every Friday, to keep the students informed of what is going on in the community as well as their schools.
