Next week, seventh grade ELA students will begin a narrative writing unit, crafting their own spooky stories with suspense. To prepare, the students enjoyed a treat! Published Spooky Story authors presented over Zoom, sharing writing strategies, word choices, failures and successes with the students. Also, students were able to ask their own thoughtful questions about the writing process, and the panel of authors took turns answering them with further “tricks of the trade”. These authors donated this advice free of charge, and our seventh grade Spartans were grateful for this opportunity to learn from the “experts”!!
