YA Lit for School Safety!

We won the School Safety Door Decorating Contest! The novel Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher has been a popular book in our classroom.  After a text-study activity with the novel, students were each given a postcard with the motto "Tell the World."  Each 8th grader created their own positive message to share with our community in order to promote anti-bullying and to support school safety.  Their inspirational messages remain on our door as a reminder of the importance of every person in our lives.  Many students spread their messages using social media and some were even featured on Jay Asher's website.
