Today we celebrate "World Book Day" in Middle School. This day is special to the middle school homeroom teachers, not because we are English teachers, but because we are English Language ARTS teachers.
This means our students have the unique opportunity to learn how language is expressed in an artistic form!
Good literature opens our eyes to the world around us and pushes us to me more creative.
Our students celebrated World Book Day by writing about and recommending their favorite book to their classmates.
They also got learn about new books in a unique way! They all received a special bookmark. Each of these bookmarks had a book cover and QR code on them.
After scanning the QR codes, the students were taken to a website where they could learn more about the book! A cool new way to integrate Art and Technology!
