Humanities with Mrs. Foote
Over the past few weeks, the 8th graders have inspired me with their thoughtful engagement as we study the seminal coming-of-age novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. Harper Lee’s timeless exploration of the moral growth and development of identity that adolescents experience has provided a seamless transition into our first I.B assessment. In preparation for this assessment, students have been crafting personal narratives about a pivotal moment in their life that has shaped their identity. This topic has been challenging for many students, due to its intimate nature. However I am happy to report that I have been blown away by each student’s ability to craft a powerful, personal story.
