Bessemer Academy now has a Google Chromebooks classroom!

20140807_121733 Our Research & Writing class shows off the Google Chromebooks they will be using in our first paperless classroom. In this college preparatory class, students prepare for the rigors of academic writing they will be required to use in post-secondary courses. In addition to these research and writing skills, our senior honors class will also be writing, designing, and publishing our weekly school newspaper as well as maintaining our school website. Bessemer Academy is preparing our 21st century learners with valuable college and workplace technology skills!
