What's Your Inquiry?

Felix Festa MS Social Studies teachers took on a challenge this past summer, that ended in victory for both them and their students.  The task, create a mini-unit for students that requires them to focus on an overarching question, to develop an answer by consulting a variety of resources, and finally to use their newly acquired knowledge to take informed action as citizens.

Team Clarkstown devised a mini-unit around the question of the role of government and with this, became one of 10 winners from across the country. The FFMS social studies department will receive $500 for this winning entry.  In addition, their work will be shared on the website as well implemented into classrooms from grades K-12 this year.
