Eighth-grade language arts teachers at Henry F. Moss Middle School (Warren County) delved deeper into the lives of their students during recent class presentations. Students were asked to bring in five items of personal importance that represented significant relationships, events or topics in their lives. Then they presented the items to the class. According to language arts teacher Keri Bowen Mosier, the students will use the representations to write personal memoirs, narratives or essays.
It was really interesting and sweet to see this version of show and tell with older students. The students really seemed to enjoy it. One student told me he and many of his classmates got a little teary-eyed when talking about the people behind the items they brought to class.
