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.
