Roll of Thunder...

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I just finished this novel with my 7th graders prior to Easter break. For a few years now I have done a newspaper project with them. Working in groups, they created a front page of a newspaper. Each student had to write his or her own article and then the group collaborated on the Headline story about TJ and the Mercantile robbery. They used publisher and added images. These projects always turned out great!

This year I am working with the Library Media Specialist and the students are creating movie trailers using iMovie on the iPads we recently purchased. After we discussed several themes found in the novel, each group selected a theme (we drew them out of a hat to be fair). Next each group had to create a trailer for a movie that has the same theme as the one they selected. They have story boarded out their ideas and began "filming" today. They are loving the project and I can't wait to see their final work.
