We spent much of the morning talking about the Convention on the Rights of the Child. We talked about the 4 foundational pieces to this important document and discussed examples of how rights are met or not being met in the context of our world as well as within our novels. Students will begin a comprehension activity focusing on this new learning tomorrow.
