Taking Language Arts to the Next Level

Having just finished "The Wednesday Wars" by Gary D. Schmidt, our sixth graders spent the last week completing projects to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the book. They chose between writing a side quest for one of the characters, creating a theme park based on the novel, or creating an Instagram for one of the main characters. Through these projects the students were able to display their understanding of the plot, character development, and the major themes of the novel.
