At the moment we are transitioning between two of our class readers, Anne Frank and Lord Of The Flies. I really enjoy diving into LOTF after Anne Frank. We have been having some great classes looking at William Golding’s life and comparing and contrasting his word view with Anne Frank’s. I have blogged about StoryCorps before, however I wanted to share again. I shared this video with class this week, it is English Week so we talked about how knowing a foreign language allows us to expose ourselves to more stories. I played this clip about an American Solider fighting in WWII. The students were deeply engaged and moved by it.
