Are you interested in involving people in your community in discussions that happen in and beyond your classroom? In this session you’ll be introduced to a process used at YHS to organize summer reading projects that involve all students and faculty members. The project has successfully broadened reading, inspired students to discuss literature beyond English class, and invigorated the intellectual climate in our school and community. The process includes the use of Google docs, Google Forms, Wikispaces, and presentation tools including iMovie and Prezi. Yarmouth High School teachers Mandy Lewis and Anne Tommaso will share the process and their learnings with session participants, and YHS students will be a part of the presentation to share the students' perspective.
