7th and 8th Grade Spoken Word Unit

For the past two months, Friends School of Minnesota 7th and 8th graders have been studying the art of Spoken Word Poetry in their Humanities classes.  The unit evolved into a journey for our students that challenged them to express their own truth through poetry meant to be performed. The unit helped students achieve both writing and public speaking benchmarks.

Regional History Day

Wow! We can’t express enough how proud we are of all of the 7th and 8th grade students. Our FSM History Day was a success, and FSM students did an outstanding job showcasing their hard work! Months of research and hard work were evident in each student’s project.
