Wright Middle 3/21

This week at Wright Middle School, we continued working with Kwame Alexander's Seventy-Six Dollars and Forty Nine Cents: A Story in Verse. In our last meeting, the students really enjoyed taking turns reading Alexander's poems aloud, and we discussed the primary characteristics of a memoir, while examining some of the poems in closer detail. For this week's activity, each student was asked to select one of Alexander's poems and adapt it to a graphic novel representation. Students were asked to consider the meaning of their poem, and then to decide how this could be represented in their illustrations. For next week, students will continue working on their graphic novel depictions of the poems, and we will finish reading Kwame Alexander's Seventy-Six Dollars and Forty Nine Cents: A Story in Verse.
