News from Jamie’s Class

November 13, 2013

In ESL, we completed a unit on Halloween. We
discussed the history of the holiday and learned
relevant vocabulary while we read scary stories. We
also began writing our own ghost stories.
In Digital Media, we enjoyed a visit from Jim Keplinger
who stopped by to explain how comic books are made.
We are currently working independently on written and
visual art projects that will eventually end up on a class
website.
In Shakespeare’s World, we finished reading and
viewing Romeo and Juliet and we are currently writing
critical essays on the theme of the play. Next week, we
will present on Elizabethan culture and maybe eat some
period-appropriate pie.
