Ms. Katz's students are reading "How To Books" and learning how an author gets readers excited. They studied ...the introduction and the conclusion of different books, and voted (thumbs up or thumbs down) on their favorite endings.

Students paired up and talked in groups, each offering their own "exciting endings" to the book the would write themselves, "How to Take Care of a Turtle."
