Many kids today feel that advertisements, toys, movies, and clothing are stereotyping what it means to be a certain gender. Today, scholars in the Hive will begin a week-long exploration through a variety of artifacts to help us gain a stronger understanding of this topic. First up...this poem written by a teenager who struggles with what it means to be a boy in today's world followed by a discussion of examples and non-examples of gender stereotypes: Real Boys Don't Cry
Today is our student teacher, Mr. Nguyen's, last day. We are so sad to see him go, but so proud of him. He is going to be an amazing teacher and change lots of lives.

Many Hive Scholars have brought up concerns or questions about the city of Baltimore. Today we will look further into the current situation in Baltimore to become informed and educated citizens.

Then, we are going to explore a variety of news artifacts using Blendspace ...thanks to Ms. Holmes for curating this collection. On your mark--get set--be INFORMED!
