As part of their unit on narrative writing, eighth graders have been studying World War I. One hundred years ago - 1917 - marks the year that the U.S. entered World War One, also called the Great War or the War to End All Wars. Over the past few weeks, students have been guided in a short research project comprised of various events - including guest speaker David Bettez from the University of Kentucky and projects for the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). These events will conclude with a writing piece for the unit.
Student work from the unit will be on display at the public library in Stanford from October 17 - 24. We invite the community to join us in showcasing the student work on opening night, October 17, where we will have a reception from 6-7:45 P.M. Students from Mrs. Hill's classes will be catering the event with cookies and drinks. Work from the projects will also be entered into the DAR contests as part of their themed event: WWI - Service from the Home Front.
