Back to School! - Book Sculptures Project

Welcome back to school, D.A.T.A. scholars!  We're back in the swing of things in Room A-4 with an exciting start to the school year with an emphasis on reading!  Students have begun their independent reading after a visit to the school library and are in the process of working in groups to construct book sculptures centered on literary genres.  Our inspiration came from an in-depth analysis and great class conversation (using "Visible Thinking Strategies") on the book sculptures of the artist Su Blackwell.  Students are in the process of creating book sculptures to convey genres of literature such as comedy, tragedy, horror/thriller, action/adventure, fantasy, romance, fairy tale, science fiction, myth, and more!  Check out some great starts below!
