8th graders are working on their self-assessment for their books.  They have chosen their topic and must demonstrate they have not only read the book but they can relate it to every day life in Honduras or France (or other places discussed in class, supplemental readings and videos) by using reoccurring themes and conflicts that were used in the books.  Since they have chosen what they will be graded on, this encourages engagement, creativity and authenticity in the type of method used to complete their self-assessment.

Their project will be due on Friday.  For those who are going on ABSH competitions, students have the option of turning in their projects before they leave or after they’ve returned.
