RSS Classes Imagine and Animate “Hammurabi vs. Mr. Lew” Conversations

The RSS classes were challenged to compare and contrast the Middle School Code of Conduct with Hammurabi’s Code, best known for its “eye for an eye” philosophy. After comparing the codes in a Venn Diagram, boys wrote a dialogue between Mr. Lewellyn and Hammurabi himself, which aimed to address themes like what makes a good law? and what makes an effective ruler? Once written, boys animated these conversations through GoAnimate. Boys reviewed peer animations using a Google form, with the option of editing their own work if reviews shed light on areas to change.
