Students have just selected their book club titles after some INTENSE book talks and discussions. We will be exploring these titles over the next five weeks. We will spend four weeks reading, meeting, and having conversations. The last week will entail a culminating project. Here, you will find the book trailers to the titles chosen. Each section has a different variety of titles. Ask your child what they chose!! If you want to read it also, I encourage conversations about the books at home as well.
The button ABOVE is a link to our #hashtaghitler project. Each student had to find an image and create a hashtag to exemplify reasons why Hitler rose to power. How could someone so "evil" convince so many people to follow him? The lesson included a Sketch Story then the class watched the short documentary below.
Please feel free to comment with which 7th grader's hashtag you thought was the most well thought out. Or, create your own hashtag for the students to think about.
Students: remember to write all assignments in your planner at school and TAKE THEM HOME to share with your parent/guardian and remind you of your responsibilities. It is a valuable tool!!
Parents: Please discuss the information in you student's planner to assure they are completing tasks required. This will also keep you in the "loop" about happenings in your student's academics.
REMEMBER: We are ALL in this together and responsibility is a part of the Alta-Aurelia Middle School expectations! Let's help each other!!
