LA Update

Happy Friday!

Drafts of the hero’s journey are done and the revising has begun! Students have been working really hard to tell their own creative heroic journey, incorporating effective dialogue and using imagery to pull the readers in. Our hope is to continue to revise and edit Monday and Tuesday of next week. If all goes as planned, students will turn in their final copy after class on Tuesday. Thanks for the hard work, you guys!

Mr. Caggia, our incredible media specialist, will spend Wednesday with us teaching us how to create a #BookSnap. The idea of a #BookSnap was created by educator Tara M. Martin after watching her son become engrossed with Snapchat. #BookSnaps are a new and interesting way for students to learn to annotate text, connect with text by creating a digital visual representation, note character conflict, and much more. I can’t wait to see what the students create! To read about #BookSnaps, check out this link.

Have a great weekend!
