International Fair--Thursday, March 31st

The International Fair is our annual Literacy project--please work with 1 (your choice) class from this term (some of you have already done this with a trimester 2 class) and incorporate reading, writing, research, or discussion into the study of your designated continent. Each department will be responsible for at least 1 display or interactive booth showcasing what our students have learned on March 31st. Along with each display, we will have a map that you can use to highlight the area(s) your department has focused on in order to give students a visual of where they are learning about.

If you still need reading material for your class, Charity Edwards ordered an anthology of about 15 short stories from all over the globe, and has summarized the stories and the continent from which they originated. You can check out the book from the library at your convenience.
