JJH IRS Update

It's been a while since you got one of these!


I've been a few rooms this week watching students do some great learning! I video taped some 8th graders reciting their WW I and WW II Poem for Two Voices. I was also in 8th grade ELA and caught a few students performing their own piece of poetry. Check them out on YouTube and at the links below.

Let me know how I can help you!
