We are at the start of Week 8 and all 9-10th grade students completed a book report today in class. That means they will select a new book and start a new home reading log tonight. Both classes are working on projects to show what they understand from reading a nonfiction book. Tenth graders have read portions of Mindset by Dr. Carol Dweck. They are working in groups to create videos promoting a growth mindset using examples from the book. They will film this week and we will watch them in class next week. Ninth graders are reading How to Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age. They are about to start a video and poster project to show important parts from their groups’ assigned section. These books have allowed us to have strong discussions about how we think and how we work with others. Reading these books will help our students not only become better nonfiction readers, but better people as well.
