PJ Farris Visits 8th Grade Language Arts

Jr. High Author Visit
On Tuesday September 23rd, the 8th grade Language Arts students spoke to author, PJ Farris about her book “Crossover Dribble.”  This basketball feel-good read started off the year in this class.  Throughout this unit, students created a webpage, debated over the underlining themes within the book, and participated in book club discussions.  In anticipation of our author visit, students prepared questions that supported their unit assessment discussion.  Not only did students learn another perspective of the book, but PJ Farris brought a copy of her current writings to share with the class.  Overall, it was a great day for reading and writing!!
