We are kicking off the new year with our One Book, One School initiative. All students and staff at John Winthrop will be reading Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. The narrator is an 11th grade boy named Leo who tells the story of Stargirl, the new girl at his school. Stargirl is not your average teenager. She wears weird clothing, plays the ukulele, sings birthday songs to peers in the cafeteria, decorates her desk before class, and changes the lives of those around her. As a class we will be looking at the use of literary devices to progress the story and character development throughout the story. Students will read both in and out of class. In addition, we will continue to study grammar in our daily warmups and students will continue to read their independent reading books.

At the end of the month of December, the students have been studying creation of suspense in the work of Edgar Allen Poe.  Specifically, the students read "The Cask of Amontillado" and analyzed how Poe created suspense within the story.  As a class, we looked for foreshadowing, dramatic irony, repeating sounds and words, and other suspense building techniques.  The students found these elements within the text and noted them. As we move into January, the students will be moving on to a unit called One Book, One School.  In this unit, all members of the faculty and student body will be reading Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli.  This book has themes of nonconformity in high school that students will find intriguing.  While the book will pose serious questions to students, it will also serve to bring together the school community.  At the end of the unit, the students will be analyzing the theme through a project on www.glogster.com.
