Sixth grade Humanities students are enjoying an end of the year baseball themed unit while reading a novel, Maniac Magee, by Newberry Award-Winning author, Jerry Spinelli. Students are working in discussion "teams" and have various roles including "pitcher" (pitch the questions), "batter" ('hits'/answers the questions), "umpire" (agrees/disagrees with the hit/answer), and "coach" (provide feedback). They are also completing a Reading Baseball Scorecard and choosing various reading activities to earn 'singles, doubles, triples, and homeruns'! Play Ball!
