Way to go, 4th Grade ALA!

Sparked by MLK Jr's Dream, fourth grade advanced language arts students spent the 2nd semester researching a real world problem that they would love to see solved. Each compiled their research into an a multigenre magazine informing others about the problem and ways to help. Lastly, students responsible for publishing SHS newsletter came to Mrs. Daley's class to share their journalism expertise. As a result, The Leaf has published our writings for all to read: https://shsleaf.org/40303/showcase/fourth-graders-write/ In addition, this is a video snippet of their visit to Maple Dale https://shsleaf.org/40270/showcase/the-leaf-teaches/ Not only have we read a ton of nonfiction and written about what we learned, the bigger hope is that our young researchers feel inspired to put their Passion into Action to make a change.
