Celebrating Changemakers in Unit II

As part of an intensive Black History Month study, Doherty students in Unit II are engaging in an interdisciplinary study of Black changemakers. “The students are researching a number of people, including mathematician Katherine Johnson of “Hidden Figures” fame, Super Soaker inventor Lonnie Johnson, iconic heavyweight boxer Muhammad Ali, Saratoga Chip creator George Crum and so many more,” said Unit II teacher Sherri Linville. “They are creating a timeline of things that happened in the lives of the people they are studying, and they will research their life’s work.” Linville said students’ work will culminate into a presentation and facts from the students’ research will be used in a Kahoot trivia game just before spring break.
