Student Sentence of the Day:
My 10th graders did an in-class essay last week that asked them to identify which of the three articles we read on literacy was the most inspiring. The articles were by Frederick Douglas, Helen Keller and Malcolm X. One of my students produced this lovely first sentence:
"Of the three narratives we read, I found Helen Keller's story the most inspiring and compelling because even in a world of darkness she was able to find her light through the beauty of language."
