A big L-Cat Shout Out to.....
Great World Texts Participants
(No, this has nothing to do with texting :)
Students in Ms. Morris's Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition class and in Mrs. Mitchell's Creative Writing and Comparative Literature class attended the Great World Texts program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
About 3000 students from all over Wisconsin read and studied “A Small Place” by Jamaica Kincaid, and about 1000 of those students presented their projects.
For their presentations, Lake Mills students created a variety of projects, including posters, short stories, podcasts, videos, and original music.
The Great World Texts program is a great opportunity for students to engage with world literature and experience what it's like to present at an academic conference.
