Northport K-8 students and teachers on the Northstar and Starfish teams collaborated on a critical lesson using new and intriguing information recently. Teachers Mala Woessner and Georgia Stone, along with Media Specialist Lynne Gruszka, worked together to present indepth information on the shocking assassination that changed America. Students read the student version of Bill O’Reilly’s “Killing Lincoln,” a realistic and historical best selling account of the last two weeks of Lincoln’s life and the conspiracy that brought a nation to its knees. The student version called “Lincoln’s Last Days” is filled with pictures, timelines and enrichment sources. The book is very student reader friendly and is appropriate for children in grades four through eight. Ms. Woessner stated, “Students were enthusiastic readers and enjoyed the historical and factual account of “Lincoln’s Last Days” and became immersed in the suspense and conspiracy.” Pictured are teachers Mala Woessner, back left, and Georgia Stone, and students Sarah Abulathou, from left, Ashley Quijada, McKenzie Hunsicker and Chayse Hirsch in the school’s Media Center.
