8th Grade Science Book Publishers

Mr. Ros Points to an iBook Created by an 8th Grader

A theme running through the curriculum at ACDS is to have students gathering, curating, creating and communicating information that helps to demonstrate their understanding. Mr. Ros worked with his 8th graders last year to help him develop an online science textbook. This year he is working with his students to publish their own books for a younger audience. 

iBook for Kindergarten Readers

Today Allie, Karson, Claire, Nate and Erin shared the iBooks with their Kindergarten buddies. Their iBooks were rich in images and they embedded audio instead of having text for their pre-reading Kindergarten buddies. This adaptive strategy fits well with our overall theme of working to provide differentiated instruction for our students at ACDS.
