Child Soldiers

We are going to design our literacy work and OSSLT prep work around the novel/graphic novel War Brothers.

We will write option pieces, summaries, scripts and practice a variety of reading strategies. Hopefully our class will be able to connect to some video conferences among students from all over the world and hear the stories of a few former child soldiers. Our research and digital literacy skills will be used to research conflicts around the world.
