Reading novels gives the students at Ed Sage School the opportunity to explore subjects and events that are meaningful for today. The students were recently asked to write a different kind of book report. They were asked to explore and explain the following topics: a continuation high school, autism, bullying, and holding on to a dream for the future.
In order to explain the topics, students had to do research to get information for the topics. Careful online research was done. Students were shown how to evaluate a website and the information it contains. They were also shown how to look for the same information being repeated on websites.
Students were challenged to write about a dream they are holding on to for their future. First, the students analyzed how one of the characters held onto a dream. Then they wrote about theirs.
Creativity in assignments is a hallmark of Ed Sage School. Students need to do in-depth learning and thinking while they are writing. This assignment provided that for them.
Ed Sage School is accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year for grades 5-8. Contact Beth Silver, Head of School, to discuss your child’s needs at 310-720-0390 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
