7th and 8th Grade ELA Lesson

To start the year, in 7th and 8th grade ELA, students are exploring poems, songs and quotes that examine individuality, self-expression and memory. The student's personal writing has focused on the people, activities, beliefs, and communities that make up their lives. They began a project called THE BOOK OF M, inspired by the novel written by Peng Shepherd. In small groups, they were given a list of 13 common childhood memories and asked to rank ten they felt were the most important. Students were asked to choose three that they would sacrifice, a choice that would make those memories "disappear from all of humanity". They reflected on the questions, "What are memories and why are they important?" They also looked at how memories impact knowledge. The students had to work together and make decisions that they will present and defend in front of a panel of peers.
