Virtue, Mirror Neurons, and the Social Contract

mirrorbrainGreetings folks,

Thanks for checking in. If this is your first time here, welcome to the blog. In these posts you can find quick updates regarding what we are currently studying in 7th grade social studies. For our first unit of study we have been focusing on virtue, integrity, and the social contract. In this unit we will begin to discuss and construct our 7th grade team’s social contract. A Social Contract is “an agreement between the members of a group where each person  identifies the duties and responsibilities of the people involved.” In order to help us succeed in our goals this year, we will work towards consensus in creating the agreement that we use to govern our 7th grade team. Enjoy our transition back into academics and don’t forget to bring your family to open house on Wednesday, October 28.
