We are 8th graders. We love social studies and are going to use our knowledge of the past to rock this world for the better. We love to learn, laugh, talk, blog, glog, create and share.
Danielle and Emily,Your idea is really simple but creative at the same time! I like how you guys made the people represent circles, instead of actual people. Great job!
I thought how it was interesting how you made it like modern art, and very simple, but at the same time, still getting the point across about the Little Rock Nine.
I like how you put it all in perspective of what the kids really went through. It's amazing that even though their were only nine of them with 100 people after them, they were still able to intergrate.
My tutor thought that they were rocks in Little Rock, Arkansas. I think the sentence at the end is really powerful and emphasizes how much curage it took for those people to choose to stand out (in not such a good way at the time).
This is an interesting approach to the project, but it is a good way to show how they were mobbed and how they were outnumbered. You can pull up this picture and say “as you can see here the Little Rock 9 were greatly outnumbered not only in their new school system but also by the people that did not want this change brought upon by Brown vs. Board.” Nice job.
