Glass’ class writes survival guide

Language arts teacher Carrie Glass contiues to write a guide to West Shore to assist new students with her seventh and eighth-grade classes.

“Our West Shore Manual book project has been all planned out,” Glass said. “We have outlines of chapters and pictures and interview questions. We’re finally ready to do this.”

The interviewing and researching process will begin next week. Students will be asking questions to the teachers via email or in person about how to survive West Shore.

“I am really excited to finally start this book project,” seventh-grader Olivia W. said, “since I know some of the things that teachers say will help me survive West Shore for the next 5 years.”

To fund the book project, Glass signed up for, a website where teachers can raise money by making a book project with their class. At the end of the campaign Glass hopes to be able to buy two electronic tablets to help her students publish the book.
