Middle School Resource
Inspired by Ellen Jackson’s picture book, My Tour of Europe by Teddy Roosevelt, Age 10, students will explore primary source documents they have studied throughout a year of study to decide which primary source from their notebooks would translate into the most interesting picture book. Working in teams of three or four, students will serve as editors, layout designers, illustrators and publishers of a book. The teacher will keep the best books in the classroom library for next year’s class, and each contributing student will sign.
