The Middle School English department had a busy and fun week with our BookBash project.
Year 7 and Year 8 classes invited parents to their presentations on the Literature books and topics they had been working on during the first part of the year. There were all kinds of interesting activities which included dramatizations, oral presentations, movie trailers, games and research on specific topics such as World War issues, human rights and childhood in different contexts. We were proud to see our students at the different work stations, sharing with their parents through a variety of media their conclusions after having read what it means to grow up in different contexts, or explaining what a dystopian society is and what we can do to avoid becoming one, or the different types of heroes’ journeys. There was also an exhibition of the stories written, published -and in some cases even bound into a book- by the students themselves. We were also visited by a fun storyteller who shared with us his stories from around the world.
Reading opens a window to other worlds and our students did a great job of entering those new worlds with enthusiasm and then guiding us into them as well during their presentations.
Congratulations to all our students and MS teachers for their hard work and their enthusiasm, and a special thanks to all the parents who were able to share the experience with us along the way!
