It's Banned Books Week!

Are you participating? 

My classes this week will be doing a project on Banned Books week. I will be assigning each group a "banned book" and they will have to preview the book and target specific sections of the book that people may find objectionable. After this task, they must write down why they thought people would want to ban the book (occult, violence, etc...) and if they agree/disagree with it being "banned." I do not tell the students in advance why it is on the list. The usually love this project, and I am excited to see their reactions again this year!

I had the opportunity to go to a Kelly Gallagher workshop at Judson this spring, and it was absolutely amazing! He was so nice when I went up to him (I was terrified and starstruck), and even wrote "You're Welcome" on this piece of paper, because my students actually asked me to THANK HIM for changing the way we read novels in class.  Students + asked me + to say thank you to an author + about school stuff = UTOPIA! Here are some of my abbreviated notes from the day: His TOP Points: Kids should write 4X more than you can physically grade  Students suffer from word poverty. Must get students reading more in order to be exposed to vocabulary. We ne

Another Pinterest crafting project!

Look what I got!!! :) I will be creating this in the next few days  hours, and hopefully it will turn out as nice as the other ones I've seen online! Inspiration: Down the Learning Road It's not exactly the same, but I wanted one that was wider rather than tall. I got the organizer at Home Depot for $16.97! I'm thinking I'll mod podge it instead of paint it, but we'll see! What projects are you working on today?
