Superintendent of Schools Dr. Christopher Pellettieri visited Ms. Bongiorno’s eighth grade U.S. History class at Sagamore Middle School for a team-teaching lesson. Students were learning about World War II and took part in interactive activities to further enhance their knowledge.
Students first put their geography skills to the test by trying to label a blank map of Europe in 1939 in the fastest time. Dr. Pellettieri worked together with student Burak Hamurcu on this exercise. The class was then asked to interpret data and activate their prior knowledge when answering a series of questions based on a 1939 Fortune Magazine public opinion poll. Finally, students worked collaboratively and used their Chromebooks to research turning points of the War in Europe. At the end of the class, they were able to summarize what they learned and answer the AIM question, “How did the United States contribute to the Allied victory in Europe?”
Students were excited to welcome Dr. Pellettieri into their classroom and embraced the team-teaching method.
