DCC Middle School Students Participate in “Let’s Glow” Publishing Party


This quarter, Mrs. Ashley Nelson’s 6th and 7th grade grammar classes worked on an in-depth, extensive writing unit. She really pushed them and promised that if they gave their best effort, they would have a publishing party.

Every student completed their paper, and they all did amazing work. They established a plot and point of view, organized events with transitions, used dialogue and description, added figurative language, and wrote a strong lead and conclusion. Mrs. Nelson said, “I was so proud of them!”

The publishing party was Glow themed. The students shared parts of their papers that they were most proud of. They also read excerpts from each other’s narratives, and left “glowing reviews” on post-its.
