VCMS Reading and Writing Workshop Projects

Please see culminating projects from 7th and 8th grade reading class, where students engaged in a unit focused on critical literacy. Students selected texts that provided "mirrors and windows" into the experience of main characters navigating difficult social issues. In the final presentations, students shared summaries of the text, analyzed the texts for social issues, reflected on how the texts offered "windows" into other worlds and also "mirrored" issues in their own lives, and identified and analyzed a media connection. Congratulations to VCMS 7th and 8th graders!
