This is the work for my Year 10 class tomorrow. I am so looking forward to what they have to say. There were some negative thoughts at first, along the lines of, "who would want to read what a bunch of Year 10s write?" I hope they will feel proud of what they've done. It certainly turned out better than I expected it would, and of course that is partly due to the influence of Pat Hensley aka Loonyhiker from twitter and plurk, whose thoughtful intelligent contibutions and answers to questions really made the students know that I was not the only one interested in their work.
The Year 10 Study Guide on The Secret Life of Bees
Have a look at each page of the study guide. Would you be surprised that between you, you have written 3728 words?
Check all the links. Did you put an internal link on the page you were responsible for?
Did you learn something new this morning while you were looking at the work that the students in 10a and 10g did?
In a thoughtful blog entry I would like you to write about the process of making the study guide.
