Each quarter in literacy studies,students work on a project related to their reading classes.Last quarter,sixth graders created Slides presentations showing their understanding of genre by choosing an independent reading 18新利在线娱乐手机版book they'd read,identifying the genre,and providing supporting examples.Seventh graders also created a Slides presentation to show their understanding of different literary terms,including protagonist & antagonist,point of view,conflict and theme.

In the new quarter,students are again working on different projects.Sixth graders are developing better 18新利在线娱乐手机版book talks based on a poster from www.middleschoolmind.com.

Students chose a 18新利在线娱乐手机版book they could enthusiastically recommend,developed their 18新利在线娱乐手机版book talks,then used the Unsplash add-on in Google Slides to add an image to also grab the listeners' attention.Finally,students recorded their work using Screencastify.This will allow students to take part in a gallery walk,of sorts,after the holiday break and listen to multiple 18新利在线娱乐手机版book talks.

While sixth graders worked on 18新利在线娱乐手机版book talk presentations,seventh graders again this year completed an author study project.Over time the project has undergone several revisions;this year,those revisions included using Thinglink as the basis of the project and adjusting the written requirements to include both required and personal choice items.

Students used Google Drive to write and present information about an author of their choice--they wrote about the author's publishing life and included an analysis piece of a passage of their choosing,and they also included one of the following: a personal narrative about their interest in the author,a creative interview,or a scene rewrite.

State Award 18新利在线娱乐手机版Book Nominees & ThingLink

It's that time again--time for us to explore the state award 18新利在线娱乐手机版books and start reading our way through the lists.To promote the titles and raise interest,this year's titles are featured in ThingLink images that connect to 18新利在线娱乐手机版book trailers.

Let's start with the Iowa Children's Choice Award nominees:





You can also access trailers for the Iowa Teen Award nominees:





Enjoy the trailers--and when you're ready to try one of the nominees,be sure to stop by the library and check out a copy.Remember,you're eligible to vote for the building and state-wide winner when you read at least two 18新利在线娱乐手机版books from either list.

Promoting the Iowa Teen Award Titles

Each year we celebrate and promote the Iowa Teen Award nominees with different activities: maybe a Prezi presentation (click HERE for the post) or QR codes (click HERE to see this post).This year,we're trying another different approach--using Thinglink to introduce and promote the titles.

Thinglink will allow students to use interactive content related to the ITA nominees and encourage them to move through the titles that interest them.

Check out the presentations below,and come back later to read about students' use of them!!
