Students in Annette McCord's seventh-grade language arts class work on "Alpha Biographies" recently at Kingman Academy of Learning Middle School. From left to right, clockwise are Zach Romero, Shianne Loos, Megan Talk (just visible behind her), Jillian Marks, Ashley Borden (just visible in picture), Shelby Swanty and Kendra Ravenburg. "Alpha Biographies" are autobiographies the students write that use the alphabet as a basic format. Students begin working on these the first week of school and write 26 paragraphs of meaningful experiences about themselves. At first they work on a tablet, then a computer, then the stories are printed out and the students illustrate them by hand. The books will be bound and printed at a professional facility and published Dec. 7.

Very cool. When are we going to see an article on the Cambridge students at White Cliffs. These kids are doing some pretty extraordinary things, most of these students are working well ahead of their grade level . It would just be nice to see them get some recognition for the work they are doing and the fact that they are the first group to do this.
