Sixth graders at the William E. Norris Elementary School in Southampton, Massachusetts, chose an environmental topic that concerned them, and then used persuasive writing and composition to create a multi-layered project that included writing, podcasting and technology/media elements. Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy their work and feel inspired to take action to address the issues. You can read and view and listen to one student exemplar sample on Water Pollution and another on saving the Giant Panda Bear.

We used Voicethread to podcast and publish the essays to the world, and invite you to join us on the last slide. What issues concern you?
