3rd Marking Period

Independent Reading for 3rd marking period will be a NON-FICTION book.  Details will be coming soon on project expectations.  I am still thinking the project through, but I'm leaning towards a live speech with visual, video, photostory, slideshow, or podcast with appropriate musical background summarizing three main aspects of the students' learning from the book (all of these could be modeled on a 5 paragraph essay structure) AND a "quiz" created with Googledocs, using the "forms" option, that the students could take after the presentation.  This would give the students feedback on what their classmates learned from their presentation.

More to come as I rattle these ideas around in my head some more.  For now, please make sure your son / daughter has a non-fiction book and is reading it.
