Punching the Air-
Check out the engagement of our students 
during our school-wide book read.

Mrs. Grant's 
9th-grade students compared the "Birth" poem in
Punching the Air to Nikki Giovanni's poem, Nikki-Rosa.   
Using the ELAGSE 9-10 RL1 standard, Mrs. Grant prompted her students to make inferences while providing textual evidence to support it. Great job, Mrs. Grant!

Ms. Calloway brought the passion and infused real-world examples while reading Punching the Air. Her students were completely enthralled with the novel.
