February 8th, Wright Middle

We had another great week at Wright Middle School! We played a warm-up game that got the kids moving around and excited to read. The students made some great progress on El Deafo, learning about predicting and characterization while we did. They love the book, too! Some of them even asked if they could take their copies home with them, but we didn't want any spoilers for the rest of the class.

We spent the rest of class interviewing the kids for a short video that we'll try to get up for our next post, as well as introducing the idea of a book trailer that the students will be working on the next few weeks. The concept of shooting some footage about El Deafo, acting, screenwriting, and editing really seemed to get them excited!

All in all, it was another great week at Wright Middle, and we can't wait to go back!
