Studying Family Culture in Unit III

Unit III students are delving into an intensive study about family culture and traditions that began in their own living rooms. “What was once a weeklong discovery has become an in-depth exploration over several weeks this year,” said Unit III teacher Dana Pease. “Students began the journey in their own homes researching their family’s cultural aspects and chose their methods for presenting their findings to the class.” Pease said some students created Keynote slideshows, while others used apps such as Pic Collage and Book Creator. Unit III students presented their findings using tri-fold posters that included pictures, words, and symbols to represent the cultural aspects of families. “From there, we are beginning our exploration of the cultures in the western United States,” said Pease. “This is our contribution to Doherty’s collective Cultural Connections investigation of America.”
