The 7th Graders Who Harnessed the .........?

The seventh grade ELA classes just recently finished the book The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwambe.  As a nod to the resourcefulness and creativity shown by William Kamkwambe in The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind and as an opportunity for the students to collaborate towards a common goal, small groups began working on a challenge project. Students were asked to identify a problem/challenge within their local community and design a solution to the problem. There are written, visual and oral communication elements to this project, as well as the chance to identify and work on collaboration skills.  Project designs and proposals were presented the week of Monday, April 8.
