This site is a resource for teachers at Middleboro High School to integrate technology with lessons from the nonfiction book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. Students and staff have been assigned the reading over the Summer 2013.
The goals for this website are two-fold: <<tab>>1) to offer ideas and inspiration for incorporating technology into curriculum, and <<tab>>2) allow teachers to share and collaborate on projects.
Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
In an effort to improve reading and writing across the curriculum, Middleborough High School has adopted the One Book One School reading program. This program requires that all grades read the same novel. Students will participate in a day of learning which utilizes the novel on Friday, September 27th. During that day, teachers will use a variety of assessments which center on the novel. Students will only be assessed on the novel during the first semester and should be prepared to discuss the novel at length. It is the hope that students will be exposed to a variety of ways to approach the novel through various subjects. The Middleborough High School faculty and staff invite all parents to read the novel as well as it was chosen with the hopes that parents and students will discuss it over the course of the summer. This year’s novel is Unbroken: An Airman’s Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand. (From the school’s website: Home ➤ Parents & Students ➤ Summer Reading)
