Jr. High Students Present Book Comparison Collaboration Projects
The 7th & 8th graders kicked off their final trimester of the year strongly with a Book Comparison Collaboration Project!
Over the course of 5 weeks, 7th graders read LIFE AS WE KNEW IT by Susan Beth Pfeffer while our 8th graders read the dead & the gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Each week, both grades would come together to compare the plot, settings, characters, and character reactions to analyze the impact of these story elements on the reader's experience.
Once both grades finished their novels, 7th & 8th graders worked together to explore one of the story elements and its’ impact on the two stories more in-depth. In small groups of 2-3, students presented their analysis to both the 7th & 8th graders of their color groups in 3-5 minute presentations. They were able to collaborate to grow their skills in slide design, presentation preparation, reading analysis, and public speaking.
Way to go Junior High students for a successful start to trimester 3!
