Becoming Authors in Unit II
Inspired by a recent virtual field trip with local author and illustrator Will Hillenbrand, Unit II students applied their knowledge to write books of their own. Teacher Sherri Linville said her students have put forth a lot of effort in their work and some are writing chapter books. “The students are really enjoying their projects and working so hard” said Linville. “One of my students is writing a five-chapter book called, ‘The Sophie Diaries,’ and another is writing a chapter book about unicorns. The students are also taking an interest in the illustrator role.” Linville said she will continue to work through revisions and edits with her students as they begin to refine their finished products.
