6th Grade Explain Everything - Single Story Project



In addition to our 5th grade 1:1 Learning Initiative we have a pilot program in House M at Wellesley Middle School.  Approximately 80 students and 4 core subject teachers (Math, ELA, Science and Social Studies) are working in a 1:1 ipad environment.  

In ELA, students were challenged to present more than their SINGLE STORY...

The single story creates stereotypes and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete.  They make one statement become the only story.”
~ Chimamanda Adichie, The Danger of the Single Story

House M classmates know part of your story.What is the rest of your story?
Here is one example of the finished product, creating using Explain Everything.
