YMS puts Presidents on Display

YORK — The seventh annual YMS Presidents Fair took place Thursday night at the middle school.

Teacher and organizer, Chad Mattox, explained the event.

“I needed to come up with an idea for a little more hands on learning for our eighth grade students and it’s just kind of taken off from there.”

“There are a variety of different parts to this where the kids have a big report, where they have to answer a variety of questions based on the presidents’ backgrounds, their elections, cabinets, and domestic & foreign successes and failures.”

“The cool part about this is that we have them evaluate the president, as much as they can, and give them a letter grade based on the York Public Schools letter grades.  They have to come up with some reasons as to why they gave them and it gets them to think critically about our leaders.”
