American Studies

In Social Studies we have been studying the United States government. Current Events such as the Ebola Outbreak, Edward Snowdens' revelations of the United States spying program, and the election in the Senate have all spurred relation to different branches of government. Another way we have connected to the government is through current music. Mr Griffith has played songs such as "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down" (Youtube Link), Schoolhouse Rocks' "I'm Just a Bill" (Youtube Link), and even a rap of the Bill of Rights (Youtube Link). These songs and many more have helped enrich our learning on Team Sirius.
Bill from Schoolhouse Rock dreams of becoming a law someday.
