Thanks to @dmb2587 for arranging our 7th grade "visit" to Jamestown today. On this virtual field trip, our students got a tour of the Jamestown archeological site and learned about life in the colonies. The bus trip was too long, but this let us be "there!" @whufsdrams @smurrayLB

These anchor charts were spied in Ms. Rogan's classroom in support of our new writers workshop approach at WHMS. They "anchor" students to lessons, expectations, or ideas to foster independence as writers. Make the room look great! @whusdrams #RamResolve @smurrayLB
