Trivia Question – We began our class by putting our research skills to test by exploring Drew’s Trivia Question of the Day: How many HBCUs are in Georgia, and how many can you name? This question gave us an opportunity to discuss the importance of research. For example, Morris Brown shut its doors in 2015 and Interdenominational Theological Center incorporated Gammon Theological Seminary. Lastly, Morehouse College & Morehouse School of Medicine are two separate institutions.
Thursday Trivia - I was born in 1938. I was the first African-American woman admitted to the bar in Mississippi. I won the Medal of Freedom in 2000. Who am I? What HBCU did I attend?
PBL – “How can I share my community (Atlanta) with the world? - We started our PBL by logging onto our Weebly (website design) accounts. We practiced finding, saving, and uploading images and/or gifs onto our sites. The children seem super excited about promoting their Atlanta community.
