How Millennial Are You?

How Millennial Are You? is a quiz developed by the Pew Research Center. The fourteen question quiz is designed to assess how much you are or are not like the average member of the Millennial Generation. The average of your responses to the questions (with the exception of the last question about your age) determines how much your are or are not like a Millennial.

Student Constitution Wiki

Last week, Mr. Farber's 7th grade students collaborated online to create a Virtual Student Constitution on a wiki. Following the project, students voted on whether or not to ratify it. A 2/3 (66.7%) vote was required to ratify the Constitution. It was narrowly defeated by a close margin; 66% approved and 44% denied.
