Our latest round of weeding has provided us with plenty of books. Many have been donated or given away to students. My art department has adopted some, but I am most impressed with what Ms. Richie, an English teacher here at Dorman did with her class. I shared with her over the summer some really cool "blackout" poems after seeing some at SCASL Conference in March 2015, and told her/showed her the many pages available! She is having fun with our discarded books. Here is a sampling of the blackout poetry a few from her classes did this week. She tells me there are more to come--the kids keep raising the bar on one another.
