A Lesson In Systems of Equations with 3 Variables!

Ms. Bussiere had her Algebra II students up and moving in a recent class where the class was learning about systems of equations with 3 variables.  Students moved around the room to represent the dimensions of a graph with 3 points (x, y,z) - or 3D.  Getting students up and out of their seats was not only a “fun” activity, but also an effective way to help students conceptualize the lesson Michelle was trying to teach.  Great job by Ms. Bussiere and her students!

An Amazing Student Lead Project!

Vista Higher Learning asked students to share their vision of the impact of language study on their future. Videos needed to  creatively convey the message that knowing world languages and cultures can change lives- starting with their own.

Here is the video submission:

And here are the credits for the video: 

Representing South Hadley High School's AP Spanish 5 class, as well as all kids whose futures will be impacted by languages in some way or another, this is my submission to the Vista Higher Learning 2011 Video Contest! Hope you like it!

We are the future.
We're moving forward.
We keep the world turning,
'cause we understand
that we're all different,
and it don't matter,
when we walk together
hand in hand.
We are the future.
We're moving forward.

'cause we understand,
that we're all different,

when we walk together
hand in hand.
We walk together
hand in hand.

Senior Dress Up Day

The Senior class came in full dress this morning, and their spirit was not dampened by the recent storm. I know that many in the community have suffered through this latest storm, and was nice for us as a community to have some fun this morning.
