North Elementary ESL students have published a class book through Student Treasures, the book is titled "It's What's Inside that Counts". The idea for the book began with a lesson on character traits. Students brainstormed character traits and discussed how everyone is unique then used these character traits to write a rough draft about themselves. Students developed their stories by writing a sentence for each trait and elaborating on that trait. To complete the project, North Elementary will host their first annual "Book Premiere" and book signing the week of Jan 17-21. Each student author will autograph the back pages of the books that were purchased.
