Student Voices at AERA Conference

Yesterday, Marlyn and Edgar had a chance to present their writing at the American Education Research Association conference. After reading The Things They Carried, my students were asked to blend truth and fiction and write a story of their own. Ultimately, students submitted their work blindly (only ID # were used, names were not included in submission) and a judging committee made up of 12th grade students, parents, teachers, researchers, graduate students, and a professor chose the winners. I am so proud of all my students and congratulations to Marlyn and Edgar.
