Clarksville Academy - Promoting Academic Excellence, Moral Integrity, Physical Growth, and Civic Responsibility

Intermediate School News: March 13 – March 17, 2017

8th Grade English

At the conclusion of reading and experiencing Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird, Mrs. Burkhart’s 8th grade English class enjoyed a culminating event called, Tea with Aunt Alexandra.

This experience allowed students the opportunity to bring their character analysis to life by having them “walk in another person’s shoes,” as Atticus Finch told his daughter Scout in the novel.

The students recreated Aunt Alexandra’s tea party and were able to mingle and converse with the citizens of Maycomb. They dressed as their chosen character and were required to converse as that persona during the entire event.

 

7th Grade English

The 7th grade have been studying the author, Rudyard Kipling during our unit on short stories. We ended the unit by writing and illustrating our own ebook short story using Kipling as  inspiration. The best part was sharing the stories with lower school students. However, 7th graders also  learned that if you want to know the truth about your work, just ask a first grader!  Days like this are what makes Clarksville Academy so special.
