Intermediate School News for October 28 – November 3, 2013

Literature

Mrs. McQueen’s 6th grade Literature classes created book jackets. The book jackets were created from books that the students selected and read. The book jackets covered many skills such as: problem/solution, characterization, summarizing, book recommendations and reviews, grammatical usage, author biographies, and grade level and above vocabulary skills. Students also designed an original cover for their book using digital designs and/or self-created designs. Each book jacket also contained a QR scan code that linked to a self created video published to YouTube. The videos featured the student’s review and summary of the book that they read for the book jacket.
