Students create interactive hallways at Allpattah Flats

Seventh grade students in Christine King’s class at Allapattah Flats K-8 School created an interactive bulletin board of the short story “The Tell-Tale Heart” by Edgar Allan Poe. The board gives other students, through the use of a flip chart, the opportunity to get a synopsis of the short story that will encourage them to seek Poe’s entire classic work out and read it on their own. The learning goal was for students to understand that text has meaning and students should be able to use dominant strategies and skills to construct that meaning.  Pictured, from left, are Ahlyissa Hicks, Zachary Grundstrom, Joshua Bailey, Jesus Paz, Jayson Tabora, and Haley Roberson.
