My 7th grade Language Arts / Literature classes are working to improve our lives through research based on our interests. What will we learn? What message will we share?

Fun in the Classroom?
It's been an entire day since our presentation n Justn Bieber, and I need to reflect on it one more time. We had two other presentations yesterday as well, in another class. Greg read from a paper about Mohammad Ali, and had stellar pictures projected during his presentation. Christina presented on violence in science fiction "these days," and engaged the students by reading aloud various passages that were proof. Which class was more fun? What makes learning fun? Were all the kids learning, even though the presentations were so very different? Take a look at this, if you're still wondering about school "these days"... I think we are learning AND having fun, at the same time. Having Fun... A Prerequisite For Learning?
