Yellow Class: Lit Tech Day

In literature class today, we recorded ourselves using Flip Video Cameras!

The first novel our class will read this year is Crash by Jerry Spinelli.  Before we begin reading the novel, we have Essential Questions and pre-reading activities to complete.  We are excited to share some of our Essential Question responses with you!

View the student created videos at the following website:!

You can leave a comment for the videos on this blog post!

Thank you,

Ms. Zicha and the Yellow Class

    “I Still get that strange felling. Like is this really me? Am I dreaming But it’s not a strange bad feeling an anymore. It’s sometimes just different, sometimes even good. So much has changed has changed from a year ago.” In Jerry Spinelli’s Crash, John Coogan is in 7th grade who goes through many changes throughout the year. John Coogan gets his nickname, Crash, in first grade, on Christmas day. Since then Crash has been crashing into things. Crash grows in many ways. One way Crash changed by learning that winning isn’t everything. Crash also grows by learning that bulling Penn doesn’t matter and in the end they become best friends. Crash grows from a bully to a bystander to an upstander.
    Since Scooter’s stroke things has changed for Crash. Crash learns that “it’s not the shoes, it’s the feet”. This means that it doesn’t matter about what something looks like it matter’s about what it makes you feel. Scooter is a positive influence on Crash. Their bond reminds me of me and my grandma. They remind me of me and my grandma because my grandma also tells stories to me. Also, she makes me feel kinda safe. In conclusion, Crash has changed throughout the novel. Crash also learned life lessons.
