Students Jam On It!


As we consider our intellectual and personal histories, we can re-evaluate who we are. At Science Leadership Academy (SLA), we ask students to consider the following questions during their freshman year:
  • Who am I?
  • How do I interact with the environment?
  • How does the environment affect me?

Students have had the opportunity to investigate aspects of African American history to better understand what it means to be an American, and individual --- and perhaps, part of a community. Specific projects that we have been working on are listed. Click on each link to learn more about each project.
  • Civil War WikiBook - Students followed/created the experiences of people in the Civil War and created "personal profiles." Thanks to Ms. Clara Badimon for coordinating this project!
  • Ethnomusicology - Students studied the influence of African and African American music on American culture.
  • Civil Rights Commercials - Students created 30-second commercials that capture a debate, argument of position thin the 20th century Civil Rights era.
