We wonder...What are the different ways authors communicate with us?
We are reading an array of poems as well as Oliver Twist as we explore this question. Authors often use sensory imagery, allusion, and comparisons such as metaphors & similes. How do these devices impact the reader?

From the student's perspective...
Written by a fellow math student:
In math class, we were assigned the “Mini-Book Project”. At first it seemed like a daunting task, especially since we needed to write a book, but as a team, the work was easier. The assignment was that we were to write a story teaching the reader about all the math lessons we had learned in a certain Chapter. Accompanying the story, we needed drawings to illustrate the events. Finally, we were required to fit this all onto a sheet the size of ¼ of regular paper, and then bind it however we want. Though these were the requirements, many parts of the project were flexible and customizable. For example, the story, the illustrations, the type of paper we used, the binding, and other small little things that contributed to the project, were all something that we, the students, get to decide.
Though it seems like a lot of work, which it was, splitting the jobs made the process go a lot faster. I learned four major things from this project: teamwork, communication, time-management, and compromise. We split the jobs to tailor everyone’s strengths, but through this process and after many miscommunications, we learned that being articulate was a lot harder than it sounded. Also, we had to manage our time-wisely as we started a little bit later than we had planned, but after many compromises we had gotten all of our jobs done. The hardest part was bringing the book together. We had all the bits and pieces, but putting them together was harder and lengthier than expected. At the end, though we hastily put the book together, it was a group effort. Though this was a hard project, it was an experience which I have learned many things from.
