Exeter-Milligan JH Language Arts update
by Valerie Barnhart, E-M Language Arts Instructor
Seventh grade students are reading A Long Walk To Water by Linda Sue Park. The characters in the novel live in the Sudan desert of Africa. With the study of the literature, we discussed the types of food the character eats in Africa. The student sampled mango, rice, cous cous, and tamarind. Students are writing an essay on the importance of water. Standing in back are Joleen Vossler, Lily Jeffries, Carter Milton, Mikey Bartu, Jayden Capek, and Aidan Vavra. Sitting in front are Kierra Papik and Emma Meyer. Liberty Johnson was absent.
Eighth grade students are reading the play “The Diary of Anne Frank” by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett. As they study the events of history including the Holocaust, we tasted some paczki rolls as traditional breads in the Jewish communities. Students are writing about their heroes and relating their characteristics to characters in the play. Standing in back are Malorie Staskal, Tyler Due, Andrew Vavra, Dravin Birkes, Draven Payne, and Troy Kallhoff. Kneeling in front are Taylor Pribyl, Savana Krupicka, Joshua Meyer, Devin Harrison, and Trenton Vossler.
