What's New at Ontario Schools?
Taggs Combine Efforts
The Eighth Grade Language Arts and Social Studies Departments recently completed an inter-disciplinary study of a significant event in America’s history. Mr. & Mrs. Tagg combined their efforts to create the Thematic Unit.   This approach to teaching and learning allows students to make better connections between the different subject areas they are studying. Students first learned about and studied the history surrounding and leading up to the Winter at Valley Forge in Mr. Tagg’s American History classes. In Language Arts, students then researched, read, and studied primary and secondary sources of this historic event. This included soldier letters home, newspaper weather reports, and family letters to soldiers. George Washington’s personal writings and other primary source documents were also used. Students then used the information to create their own fictional character and family life story from the Revolutionary War time period. Finally, students wrote letters home to their character’s friends, family, and loved ones. Through this inter-disciplinary approach, students gained a better understanding of what it was like to be a soldier at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-1778. Students then used all of the information learned in their study of The American Revolution to complete a Review Board Game in Social Studies.
