Eighth grade students in Mrs. Schwartz’s and Mrs. Burns’ reading classes recently teamed up to work on author projects. Each team selected a favorite author, such as Nicholas Sparks, Dr. Seuss, Jerry Spinelli, and Edgar Allen Poe. They then read several books by that author and created a presentation for their classmates. Students made power points and posters, dressed as favorite characters in their books, and gave personal views about the books to encourage classmates to read them. Pictured above are some of the students who participated in the activity.
