Exeter-Milligan Update: English and Journalism

 Juniors Colton Bossaller, Kate Jansky, James Becker and Mitchell Manning designed timelines with main events from their literature circle novel. 

For their literature circles, sophomores had a choice to read either Life of Pi or The Running Dream.  Pictured are: front - Caitlin Murphy

Greetings from the Exeter-Milligan 10-12 English and Journalism classroom!

As the second semester begins to wind down, we are staying busy in our English and Journalism classes. In English, all classes are participating in literature circles. The students in each class had a choice between two novels, and students were split into groups depending on the novel they chose. Students are completing a number of group activities as they complete their reading assignments, including lots of interesting discussion about the book content. Students will also be completing a book project on a book of their choice at the end of the semester. I can’t wait to see how those turn out as the students have been working hard to complete their books throughout the semester!

Journalism students are continuing their work writing articles for the weekly school newsletter, blogs on their web pages, and posts on the school’s social media pages. New digital media ideas are in the works for next year, and it will be exciting to see these ideas come to life on our school social media pages and other media outlets!     

Thank you for taking the time to read about our classroom, and enjoy the rest of the semester!
