I’ve been finding all sorts of good stuff in the basement. My latest find was hidden amongst my notebooks from high school. Why did I keep my notebooks from high school? Good question. Maybe it was just so I could find this and chuckle all over again.
Anyway, what I found was a project that I did during my senior year at Thornapple Kellogg High School. My AP Lit class partnered with a class of 4th graders to produce children’s books. Once we paired off, we were given some criteria to cover in creating the book together. The story had to be a joint effort, as well as the illustrations. Throughout the project, we wrote letters, pen-pal style to our younger partners. It was a good time.
My partner then was a cool kid named Chris. Chris was the little brother of a girl who was in Jazz band with me, so we already had some common ground to work from. I look forward to posting the different parts of our project, because I think our story was pretty good and the interactions we had even better.
Hopefully you find it interesting as well.
