9th graders ask themselves: “What’s my sentence?”
Tasha Graff, a 9th grade English teacher at Morse High School in Bath, Maine, saw the Drive video excerpt, and decided to play it for her class. Then she asked her students to answer the question posed in the video and in an exercise on page 154 of the book.
Here’s a sample of their responses:
She changed the way kids feel about going to the doctors and dentist.
He made the NFL and gave money for children’s athletics throughout the USA.
His life was lived to the fullest and he had no regrets.
Her behind-the-scenes management made the shows the best Broadway has ever seen.
He saved lives every day with a scalpel.
She changed the world in subtle ways.
Cool, huh? Stay tuned. We — and some others — will be doing more with this sentence exercise throughout the month of March.
