Last week, the seventh graders added to their artistic exploration of the novel Chains, written by Laurie Halse Anderson, by performing skits based on scenes in the novel. This, in addition to their already fine work with poetry around the novel.

Jake Lahey, the seventh grade history teacher, tweeted out a photo, and included Anderson, specifically in the Tweet.

She liked it!

By the end of the week, we had mutual admiration– and our students and their teachers, were connected to an author, once again.

Anyone can join the Twitter fun, and have the windows opened to moments in the classroom. Here is a short directory of Twitter handles for those who teach in our middle school:
