What’s New in the OMC Family:

English: In English, students continued to work on tracking their mastery of key content standards. They also finished reading the Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet.  In the last few weeks of school, students will be conducting research through the library databases and synthesizing the information with Romeo and Juliet through a writing assignment and a creative project selected from a menu of options. The link below is to a recent student video re-enactment of Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet:

AVID: In AVID, students supported each other in their learning through creating video tutorials of important concepts that they have learned this year. They each selected a different topic from the final study guide for college geography and high school math so that all topics were covered. Then, students posted the video tutorials in google classroom so that they could all benefit from each other’s resources during the study process. The links below show a few samples of student-created tutorials using google jamboard and screencastify:

The Rock Cycle

Plate Boundaries and their Movements

Solving Literal Equations

Completing the Square
